Delta Air Lines is planning to return to the Korean capital Seoul from June next year. Together with this will follow a codeshare expansion with South Korea’s largest airline and fellow Skyteam partner Korean Air.
“Delta and Korean Air are expanding a 20+ year trans-Pacific partnership, and we believe the new Delta service between Atlanta and Seoul in conjunction with an enhanced partnership with Korean solidifies our joint position as leading carriers in the U.S.-Asia market,” said Steve Sear, Delta’s President – International & Executive Vice President – Global Sales. “Incheon International Airport is one of the premier gateways to Asia and the strength of our combined hubs and flight offerings gives customers a significantly enhanced portfolio of destinations for travel.”
“The carrier intends to strengthen its Asian presence through the introduction of these daily flights,” Nasdaq reported. “Delta will utilize a 291-seat, Boeing 777-200LR aircraft for operating the flights between the two cities.”
The route will launch on June 3rd next year and will be operated daily with a Boeing 777-200LR. Schedule courtesy of airlineroute:
