Delta Air Lines is making large cuts in flying at its hubs, including a 60% reduction in flights at its largest hub in Atlanta.

Atlanta-based Delta, like other airlines, has cut the vast majority of its flights in New York, a hot spot for the coronavirus outbreak in the United States and a city where Delta has a domestic hub at LaGuardia Airport and an international hub at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Delta has cut service at LaGuardia by more than 90% in April and at JFK by more than 80%.

Some states have imposed restrictions on travelers from New York.

And amid international "do not travel advisories," border closures and restrictions, Delta has made some of its biggest cuts to international flying, suspending dozens of routes to cities across Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada.

With the cuts, Delta is operating only about 20 international routes in April, including just a handful from Atlanta -- to Amsterdam, Toronto, Mexico City and Cancun, Mexico.

Overall, Delta is cutting flights 80% this month and said it expects its second-quarter revenue to be down 90%.
