LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Breeze Airways is reducing its flight schedule through Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport (SDF).

Authorities with the airport say the airline will no longer fly to Charleston on Sundays and Thursdays. The airline will still operate those flights on Monday and Fridays from SDF.

The change of flight schedule will not impact service to New Orleans (MSY) and Tampa (TPA). Authorities say those flights will still run four times a week.

A spokesperson for Breeze Airways said they had to reduce service because of an "aircraft delayed into service."

"We continue to be pleased that Breeze chose SDF as one of their 16 launch cities in May, giving areas travelers another expanded option to visit their favorite places," Natalie Chaudoin, a spokeswoman for the Louisville Regional Airport Authority, said. 

Chaudoin says the airline recently made schedule adjustments to their entire network "to improve overall operational performance," adding it is not uncommon for an airline to make changes to routes for a variety of reasons.

The airline started servicing the Louisville area on May 28. Gareth Edmondson-Jones, a spokesman for Breeze, says the company has plans to add more routes later this year.
