Delta cuts some Southwest Florida nonstop flights
Two months of flights slashed amid cost-cutting

Delta Air Lines won’t provide nonstop service from Southwest Florida International Airport to Boston and Columbus, Ohio, for September and October.
Those cancellations might not be the last.
In a regulatory filing announced Wednesday, the airline said it will cut domestic capacity by 13 percent during the second half of the year, an increase from the 10 percent reduction announced in March.
…Delta previously offered four nonstop flights a week to Boston and Columbus, Ohio, during September and October. These are months when demand from tourists and winter residents is not great, Moreland noted.
Besides Delta, JetBlue provides local nonstops to Boston; AirTran serves Boston with connecting flights. It’s possible Columbus will have no local nonstops in September and October of this year, Moreland said.
