Delta Air Lines continues to expand its footprint in Asia with the announced addition of new service from its Minneapolis/St. Paul hub to Seoul-Incheon beginning next year.
As part of a partnership with Korean Air, Delta passengers will have over 80 destinations in Asia and a world-class customer experience at the new Terminal 2 in Incheon International Airport, the home of Delta and Korean Air.
When flying from Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport, Delta will use refreshed Boeing 777-200ER aircraft with all new cabins and features, including 28 Delta One suites, 48 Premium Select cabin seats and 220 all-new Main Cabin seats. All cabins will also boast in-seat USB, 110V power ports, in-flight Wi-Fi and new dynamic LED lighting.
“Delta’s future is global and adding another nonstop flight to the joint venture’s Seoul-Incheon hub with Korean Air expands on our long-term vision,” Delta CEO Ed Bastian said in a statement. “This will be a great driver of international commerce for the Minneapolis/St. Paul community and the State of Minnesota, as well as benefiting our customers, our employees and our owners.”
In addition, Delta flights departing South Korea now feature menus in all cabins curated by Michelin two-star Chef Kwon Woo Joong, who will also consult on menu design with the airline’s kitchens in the United States.
The addition of service to Seoul-Incheon will mark Delta’s second trans-Pacific nonstop flight from Minneapolis/St. Paul, complementing existing service to Tokyo-Haneda International Airport.
Schedule details for the new route will be announced at a later date.
