Delta Air Lines will discontinue flights between Atlanta and Barcelona and New York's John F Kennedy airport and Prague in the fourth quarter.

The cuts are part of the a 5% decrease in passenger capacity over the Atlantic during the quarter that Ed Bastian, president of Delta, outlined at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch global transportation conference last month.

Both routes will resume in the second quarter of 2013, says Delta.

The Atlanta-based carrier currently operates the Atlanta to Barcelona route daily on an Airbus A330-300 and the JFK to Prague route daily on a Boeing 767-300, according to Innovata schedules.

Delta previously announced that it would end service between Atlanta and Milan Malpensa, and JFK and Athens, Greece in the fourth quarter.
