UK Airports are set to see further reductions in the number of flights over coming months.

Delta Air France have announced that they will be reducing the number of flights that they operate between the US and the UK this winter, with the first reductions coming into effect September 2009.

A spokesperson for Delta Air France said “Customer demand for international travel has fallen significantly. This fall’s capacity will target routes that have experienced losses in the current economic climate and with higher fuel prices.”

The routes affected will be Edinburgh Airport to New York JFK, which will be suspended, and London Gatwick to Cincinnati, which will also be cut. Flights from Gatwick and London Heathrow to Atlanta, and Heathrow to New York’s JFK Airport will continue to operate.
