A number of new flights were announced in this week’s air travel news.
In Asia, this week Delta opened bookings for its service between Minneapolis – St. Paul and Seoul – Incheon. The new nonstop, daily flight, which begins April 2019, will be operated using the airline’s newly refurbished 777 fleet.
The new flight is in cooperation with Delta’s joint venture partner, Korean Air, which also announced this week plans to launch new nonstop service between Boston and Seoul, starting April 12, 2019. The two new flights are the first additions to the joint venture’s Seoul-Incheon network since the two carriers launched their partnership in May.
In Europe, Air Italy opened bookings this week for the winter season for its new, four time weekly service between Milan and Miami. The flight will operate on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays on an Airbus A330-200. A New York – Milan route is also available, five times per week operating on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Finally, in Mexico, two low-cost carriers inked a new codeshare agreement this week. Frontier Airlines and Volaris have announced a new partnership that will connect Frontier customers from the United States with Volaris’ destinations in Mexico and Central America, and vice versa. The two airlines had signed the agreement earlier this year. Bookings for flights operating under the new codeshare are now on sale.
