ATLANTA- Delta Air Lines (DL) is set to enhance its flight schedule to China in the upcoming months, introducing expanded connectivity with 10 weekly flights to Shanghai-Pudong International Airport (PVG) from its Seattle (SEA) and Detroit (DTW) hubs.
Commencing from October 29, the airline will institute daily flights departing from SEA and three-times-weekly service originating from DTW.
Delta China Flights
Furthermore, in March of the following year, Delta will revive its four-times-weekly PVG service from its Los Angeles (LAX) hub, a route that was last operated in February 2020.
Jeff Moomaw, Delta’s Vice President for the Asia Pacific, remarked,
“As the demand surges and the vibrant travel season to the Asia-Pacific region takes off, the Delta team is fully prepared to extend a warm welcome to more travelers venturing into the region this winter, ensuring they experience our renowned customer service throughout their journey.”
Delta passengers will enjoy the added convenience of seamless connections to various cities within China, facilitated by the airline’s collaboration with China Eastern Airlines (MU).
This partnership equates to a substantial 260 codeshare flights per week, translating into an enriched selection of travel possibilities for passengers and an elevated level of travel convenience.
Airbus A330 and A350 will Serve the Routes
All of these routes will offer passengers the choice of four distinct onboard experiences: Delta One Suites, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+, and Main Cabin.
Those traveling in Delta One will relish enhanced privacy and the luxury of a lie-flat seat, complemented by sumptuous bedding crafted from recycled materials, meticulously crafted Someone Somewhere amenity kits, gourmet chef-designed meals, and various other amenities.
Customers in Delta Premium Select will revel in extra space courtesy of a wider seat featuring a deeper recline, an adjustable footrest, a leg rest, a heightened dining experience, and a host of considerate amenities.
America China Doubles Weekly Flights
In an unusual display of collaboration between the world’s two largest economies, the United States of America (USA) and the Republic of China are set to endorse a doubled quota of passenger flights for air carriers connecting the two nations.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) revealed its intention to augment the allowance for Chinese passenger flights bound for the U.S.
As of September 1, the permitted weekly round-trip flights will surge to 18, and this number will further escalate to 24 per week beginning October 29. This marks a significant increase from the existing limit of 12 weekly round-trip flights.
U.S. airlines are not anticipated to take advantage of all 18 weekly flights immediately.
