(Memphis)  Delta Air Lines won’t be resuming flights from Memphis to Amsterdam next summer.

Delta discontinued the daily flights from Memphis International Airport back in September. At the time, an airline spokesperson said the flights would return during the summer travel season.

Tuesday, Delta announced its decision to permanently end the flights, citing the high cost of jet fuel and low demand.

The decision leaves Memphis International Airport without any regular international destinations. Of course, FedEx continues to serve international destinations from its Memphis superhub.

The flights to Amsterdam began with much fanfare back in 1995 as part of a partnership between Northwest Airlines and the Dutch carrier KLM.

Delta and Northwest merged in 2008 and the Northwest was retired in 2010.
