Southwest Airlines will temporarily halt flights on three routes early next year as it deals with a decline in air traffic and tries to bend its schedule to fit seasonal demand.

  The Dallas-based airline published a new schedule Tuesday that covers flights from next Jan. 9 to March 12.
 
The airline says it will cut one flight per day on 92 routes and increase service on 42 routes, usually also by one trip per day.
 
Southwest also will suspend service between Albuquerque, N.M., and Portland, Ore.; and between Manchester, N.H., and Phoenix, with flights resuming in February. Flights between Kansas City and Seattle will stop in January and resume in May, the airline says.
 
It will add nonstop service from St. Louis to Boston and Milwaukee.
