Delta to resume passenger flights between US and China
Delta Airlines will re-start service between Seattle and Shanghai-Pudong via Seoul-Incheon on June 25, operating twice per week. From July and beyond, it will operate once-weekly flights from Seattle and Detroit, also via Incheon. The tickets are open for booking on all channels including Delta.com, Fly Delta app, agencies and online travel agencies. Delta is the first US airline to re-connect the US and China since the temporary suspension in February due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We are excited to resume our services between the US and China, as economic and social activities start to recover,” said Wong Hong, Delta's President - Greater China and Singapore. “With a mission to connect the world, Delta is committed to getting our customers to their destinations safely and confidently, especially at this critical time. We are implementing unprecedented health and safety measures and practices, so customers are assured of ease and safety at all points of their journey.”
The Shanghai Pudong-Seattle flights will be served with Delta’s A350 aircraft, bringing clean and safe services to customers. Moreover, Delta is constantly updating best practices and improving the new standard of care based on expert medical advice and the feedback of customers. The airline has also launched a Global Cleanliness Division dedicated to innovating and evolving its already-high cleanliness standards.
