SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Delta Air Lines says it will suspend nonstop Salt Lake City-to-Tokyo flights because of diminished demand and fallout from the swine flu.

Delta spokesman Anthony Black says the airline will drop the route from Oct. 1 to May 14, when flights are set to resume, The Salt Lake Tribune reported on its website Wednesday.

Delta launched the nonstop flights in June every day except Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Delta CEO Richard Anderson has said the carrier has seen its revenue stream decline by billions of dollars because of the weak economy and the drop-off in demand for air travel. The airline previously announced it plans to cut international capacity by 15 percent starting in September.

Black says Delta will continue to offer daily nonstop flights from Salt Lake City to Paris.
