GREENVILLE — Greenville officials say Delta Air Lines has decided to remove some routes out of Memphis and may discontinue or alter its Greenville-Memphis connection from Greenville Mid Delta Airport.

Kim Dowdy, with the Delta Economic Development Center, tells the Delta Democrat Times that the city is holding to stave off any such decision.

Dowdy is hoping for a meeting Delta and Mississippi’s congressional delegation by the end of July.

Delta spokesman Tebor Banstette would not confirm that any decision had been made.

However, Banstette says Delta is reviewing plans for a number of smaller, underperforming markets.
