UPDATE:

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Dothan Regional Airport has released a statement on why Delta Airlines has reduced the number of flights per day from Dothan to Atlanta.

Beginning on Oct. 6 only two commercial flights will run from Dothan to Atlanta instead of three.

Delta has suggested that this is an issue of pilot and ground handler shortages throughout their global system.

Dothan Regional Airport is one of 40 airports around the country that experienced this reduction, according to the release. The schedule will be analyzed every 30 days, with a plan to restore original flight schedules as soon as staffing problems are solved.
