In April 2019, Delta will launch flights between
Seoul-Incheon and Minneapolis/St Paul, using the airline’s newly
refurbished 777 fleet.
Available for sale now, the new flights,
in cooperation with Delta’s joint venture partner Korean Air,
complements the airline’s existing nonstop services to Seoul from
Atlanta, Seattle and Detroit.
The new flight from
Minneapolis, along with recently announced
Boston-Logan/Seoul-Incheon service that Korean Air will operate in April 2019, are the first additions to the joint venture’s
Seoul-Incheon network since the two carriers launched their
partnership in May.
“This additional Delta flight will be
an exciting way for many of our customers in Minnesota and in
cities across the U.S. to access Seoul and dozens of destinations
in Asia with one convenient connection in the world-class Terminal
2 at Incheon,” said Steve Sear, Delta’s President – International
and Executive Vice President, Global Sales. “We look forward to
April when the inaugural flight takes off from both airports,
signifying how the Delta-Korean Air joint venture benefits our
customers, our employees, the communities we serve and our

The new cabins all have in-seat USB and

varies by phase of flight.
As of June 1, Delta flights departing
Korea feature menus in all cabins curated by Michelin two-star
Chef Kwon Woo Joong, who will also consult on menu design with
Delta’s U.S. kitchens.
The service is Delta’s second
trans-Pacific nonstop flight from its MSP hub, complementing
existing service to Tokyo-Haneda, where Delta also intends to
deploy the refurbished 777-200ER aircraft in November 2018.
