TOKYO -- Delta Air Lines will end service between Tokyo and Guam in January in light of weak demand, just days after tensions between North Korea and the U.S. prompted a low-cost carrier to postpone starting flights to the American territory.

Delta operates one or two round-trip flights daily between Guam and Narita Airport near the Japanese capital. Flights already booked for dates after service ends Jan. 8 likely will be transferred to other carriers.
