After the World Equestrian Games, Delta Air Lines plans to end its non-stop service between Lexington and its Cincinnati hub.
A Delta spokesman tells WKYT that the route wasn't “particularly profitable” since the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky Airport is so close.
Lexington-Cincinnati flights end November 1.
After merging with Northwest Airlines, Delta became the world's biggest airline and carries the most passengers in and out of Blue Grass Airport. But Delta has also substantially scaled back its service from the Cincinnati-North Kentucky Airport following the post 9/11 travel slump and merger. The airport has lost two-thirds of its commercial service.
Delta says it will continue to have non-stop service from Lexington to its other major hubs in Atlanta, Memphis, Detroit, and Minneapolis.
