LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Officials say the Louisville International Airport will lose five flights in May due to a national airline cutback caused by the rising cost of fuel.
Skip Miller, executive director of the Louisville Regional Airport Authority, told the Courier-Journal that Delta Air Lines will eliminate a daily nonstop flight to Boston and a nonstop flight to Orlando, Fla. starting May 6.
Southwest Airlines will also eliminate flights to Orlando, Tampa, Fla., and Baltimore effective on May 10.
Miller also said Frontier Airlines replaced a 132-seat Airbus 319 aircraft with a smaller 76-seat Embraer 175 regional jet, but will continue two daily flights to Denver.
