Delta on expansion mode in trans-Pacific, to add nonstop Shanghai-Atlanta flight
July 20, 2017: The American airline, Delta Air Lines is expanding in Asia with new service between Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Shanghai Pudong International Airport starting in July 2018.
The new Atlanta flight will be Delta’s fourth US gateway to Shanghai, in addition to the existing service from Detroit, Seattle and Los Angeles. The flight will provide convenient one-stop access to more than 150 destinations in the US and Latin America from Shanghai. The flight will also provide access to more than 50 destinations in China with codeshare partner China Eastern.
Ed Bastian, CEO, Delta Air Lines said, “Strong demand for Delta service across the Pacific and to China nonstop from the US as well as our China Eastern partnership make this route compelling for both business and leisure travellers. We look forward to connecting Delta’s hometown and China Eastern’s home with this route while offering our customers innovative products, thoughtful in-flight service and leading operational reliability.”
The flight creates a direct link between one of China’s major commercial and industrial centres and Atlanta. The new flight adds to Delta’s existing service to Seoul and Tokyo, providing Atlanta with non-stop service to the three largest markets in Asia and convenient one-stop access to more than 75 destinations in Asia with partners China Eastern and Korean Air.
“Both global connectivity and maintaining a strong relationship with China are extremely vital to Georgia’s economic landscape. This nonstop flight will not only serve our tourism industry by shortening the international travel time but will bolster our business community as well. The flight will help shorten supply chains for our companies and give them a daily link to China for time-sensitive distribution. I appreciate Delta Air Lines for all of its hard work in making sure that Georgia remains a leader in the global marketplace,” said Georgia Governor Nathan Deal.
