British air carrier Virgin Atlantic says it is ending service to the less-traveled destination in favor of increasing flights to popular U.S. destinations and large cities.

On the chopping block for the airline co-founded by Sir Richard Branson is Tokyo, Mumbai, Vancouver and Cape Town.

Virgin Atlantic CEO Craig Kreeger said, “Transatlantic flying has always been at the heart of our network and our most financially successful region”.  The airline is increasing daily flights to New York and starting new service to other U.S. cities like Detroit and Atlanta.

Some of the airline’s busiest destinations are Orlando, San Francisco, New York, and Los Angeles.
