Airline Cuts Daily DM Flight

Aug. 6, 2009


Des Moines International Airport officials said Tuesday that Delta plans to cut it's daily flight from Des Moines to Salt Lake City.

The daily flight will discontinue service at the end of August, Delta told airport officials.

The flight was added in May, but Delta officials said "economic and industry conditions prevent the route from being profitable."

A Delta official said the airline might reinstate the service at some point in the future if the economy and commercial air industry rebound.
