THE only route connecting the US to Andalucia will be stopped next year, it has been announced.

The Malaga – JFK New York connection, operated by Delta Air Lines, with Air France and KLM, will cease to operate in 2020 after an 11-year run.

The American company will be concentrating more on Madrid and Barcelona, which offers direct routes all year to New York and Atlanta.

Delta has yet to give a specific reason for cancelling the Malaga route, which only operated over the summer months.

The shock announcement comes after they extended the service last year, beginning it a month earlier in May.

Delta confirmed it is stopping the Malaga route but gave little away as to its reasons why

It urged its Costa del Sol customers to continue to fly to the US by connecting at their ‘hubs’ in Madrid or Amsterdam.

Customers who already have flights booked for next summer will be booked onto alternative flights.

Delta said it regretted any inconvenience caused.

It’s a blow for the Costa del Sol’s tourism industry, especially given that it was hoping to make the route an year-round offer.

It now means Andalucia has no direct access to the growing and huge American tourism market.
