Delta doubles flights from the United States to China

by James Wilkinson

Delta Air Lines is set to add two weekly flights between the United States and China starting August 24 to meet increased customer demand and a rebound in travel, according to the leading carrier.

Delta will add flights from Seattle and Detroit to Shanghai-Pudong via Seoul-Incheon and in doing so, the airline will operate four weekly flights between the United States and China.

In late June, Delta became the first United States airline to re-connect the USA and China following a temporary suspension of service in February due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

“We are excited to expand our seat capacity to address the growing demand from customers, who are showing a strong need for travel,” said Delta Air Lines President – Greater China and Singapore, Wong Hong.

“We will continue our commitment to providing a safe travel experience, as our top priority remains safeguarding the safety, health and peace-of-mind of our passengers and our crew.”

The Seattle-Seoul-Shanghai flights and the Detroit-Seoul-Shanghai flights will be served with the A350-900, featuring Delta’s newest cabin products and bringing clean and safe services to customers.

Moreover, Delta is constantly updating best practices and improving Delta CareStandard, new standards of care based on expert medical advice and customer feedback.
