Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines Inc. will indefinitely suspend nonstop flights between New York and Amman, Jordan, on June 1 to compensate for low demand and rising fuel costs.

Delta has also canceled plans in April to resume nonstop flights between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport to Cairo. The flights were initially canceled in February due to unrest in the country.
