Delta Air Lines has added a fourth nonstop daily flight from Wichita to Minneapolis, but the carrier is cutting one daily flight to Memphis, the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport said .
The extra flight to Minneapolis begins today.
Service from Wichita will be provided by Delta connection carriers.
Beginning Sept. 6, Delta will reduce its daily flights from Wichita to Memphis from two to one.
Never miss a local story.
The move comes as the industry shrinks capacity domestically because of higher fuel prices, according to information from the airport.
Delta will spend an additional $3 billion this year on fuel because of the increases.
It will reduce its Memphis flying by 25 percent.
Delta will operate 10 "peak-day flights" during the fall and the winter from Wichita, the same as its 2010 schedule serving Atlanta, Minneapolis and Memphis.
