Delta cuts flights between Minneapolis-St. Paul and Hawaii, other countries


March 27, 2020

Tail fins of Delta Air Lines planes at Pinal Airpark, in Red Rock, Ariz., as many passenger planes are being kept at the facility as airlines cut back on service due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

Delta Air Lines temporarily ended Minnesota's direct connections to Hawaii and most places overseas, including Canada, part of the ongoing reduction in its flight capacity as demand continues to weaken for air travel.

Delta, the dominant carrier at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, ended its daily direct flight to Honolulu on Thursday. The carrier last week said it was reducing its overall capacity by 70%, and would park 600 of its approximately 900 airplanes as demand for travel plunged amid the coronavirus outbreak.
