Delta Air Lines will discontinue its flights to Haiti as of January.
The airline will end its service between Atlanta and Port-au-Prince, Haiti after the last flight on Jan. 9, 2020.
Atlanta-based Delta said it will re-accommodate passengers or offer refunds to customers with flights booked on the route after that date.
The airline launched flights from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to Port-au-Prince with Saturday service back in 2012, a return of the route after a more than 20-year absence.
But this week, Delta cited “soft demand” in its decision to suspend the route and said it “must respond to market conditions to maintain its long-term viability.”
Delta had already ended its long-standing service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Port-au-Prince earlier this year.
“We are deeply grateful to those who have supported the service over the last decade,” Delta said in a written statement.
Delta’s joint venture partner Air France operates flights from Miami to Port-au-Prince. Other airlines that fly to Port-au-Prince’s Toussaint Louverture International Airport from Florida include American, JetBlue and Spirit.
