Delta Airlines has launched a new flight to Seoul-Incheon from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Delta Airlines Flight 27 departed June 3, 2017, at 1:05 p.m., marking the new daily service between Delta's Atlanta hub and Seoul-Incheon International Airport. Georgia Governor Nathan Deal and other dignitaries addressed customers prior to the flight's departure.
The new service compliments existing Korean Air service between Atlanta and Seoul-Incheon, giving customers more nonstop options to and from Asia as well as additional cargo capacity between the U.S. and South Korea. The flight is being operated on Boeing 777-200LR, equipped with 37 lie-flat seats with direct aisle access in Delta One, 36 seas in Delta Comfort+ and 218 seats in the main cabin. Every seat as personal in-flight entertainment on demand along with Wi-Fi and power ports.
Earlier this month, the joint cooperation agreement (JCA) between Delta and Aeromexico took a step forward. The two airlines said that they have confirmed with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and Mexico’s Federal Economic Competition Commission (COFECE) that they have completed the steps required to launch the JCA.
The new partnership on transborder flights between the United States and Mexico will allow the two carriers to serve new destinations, as well as add additional service and create more convenient schedules, the two airlines said. It will also see the two airlines begin to invest in airport facilities, boarding gates and lounges, as well as to implement joint sales and marketing initiatives in both countries.
Delta Airlines offers customers more than 15,000 daily flights, with key hubs and markets including Amsterdam, Atlanta, Boston, Detroit, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York-JFK and LaGuardia, London-Heathrow, Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Salt Lake City, Seattle and Tokyo-Narita.
