Delta Airlines is temporarily cutting two weekly flights to Juneau.

Anthony Black, a Delta spokesperson, says effective immediately Delta will no longer fly to Juneau on Tuesday or Saturday. There will be no southbound flights on Sundays or Wednesdays. Sometime in March, Sundays will be added back to the schedule. In May, Delta will revert back to offering seven flights per week in May.

The company started flying year-round to the capital city in the summer of 2015. The airlines scaled up to a Boeing 737 during the summer, which can accommodate 160 passengers, but demand slowed as tourist season ended.

Black said Delta passengers who have already scheduled flights can be reimbursed or rerouted through Alaska Airlines.
