HAGATNA, Guam (AP) - Delta Air Lines has announced it will end flights between Japan and Guam.
The Pacific Daily News reports that the last morning flight between the U.S. territory and Japan will be in October and the last afternoon flight will be Jan. 8, 2018.
Delta spokeswoman Hiroko Okada says the demand has not been strong enough to sustain the route. Delta plans to provide impacted customers with the option to travel on other airlines.
United Airlines will now be the only U.S. carrier with operations on Guam and flights to Japan. Japan Airlines will also continue to operate the Narita-Guam route.
Sen. Dennis Rodriguez, chairman of the legislative committee on tourism, says officials now need to work twice as hard to maintain Gaum's existing partners, such as United Airlines.
