Delta to stop cargo at Anchorage

DELTA Airlines is to cancel all freighter operations of its subsidiary, Northwest Airlines, out of Anchorage, US as of 31 December. The company blamed the economic slowdown and age of the freighters for the move.

Passenger flights with bellyhold- capacity will still operate from the airport.

Forty of the current 80 cargo jobs located at Anchorage will be cut. The employees will be encouraged to accept placements elsewhere.

Delta bought out Northwest last year making it “the world’s largest airline”. The Northwest brand is slowly being eliminated over the next year.
