Delta Air Lines will continue to expand from its ‘Asian Gateway’, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, with the launch of new services to two of the region’s key cities – Seoul and Hong Kong.

Commencing on 2 June 2014, the new direct Seattle-Seoul service will operate daily to the Korean’s capital’s Incheon International Airport, using a 210-seat Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. The Hong Kong service will take-off for the first time on 16 June 2014, operating daily aboard a 234-seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft.

“By offering new service from Seattle to Seoul and Hong Kong, Delta will now offer customers service to the top five destinations in Asia,” said Mike Medeiros, Delta’s vice president for Seattle. “Our expanding Seattle network, combined with investments in our aircraft, the airport and the community shows our commitment to become Seattle’s premier international carrier.”

The new services will complement Delta’s existing services to Shanghai, Beijing and Tokyo. For Asian passengers, Delta offers a series of domestic and international connections onward from Seattle, including a codeshare agreement with Alaska Airlines.

The Seoul service will depart Seattle at 1200 each day, getting into Incheon airport at 1530 the following day. The return service will leave the Korean capital at 1720, arriving back into Seattle at 1205 the same day, having crossed the International Date Line. The Hong Kong service meanwhile, departs Seattle-Tacoma airport at 1330, arriving into Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) at 1845 the next day. The return flight will then leave HKIA at 1000 the following morning, arriving in Seattle at 0755 the same day, also crossing the International Date Line.

The two new destinations will also expand Delta’s total Asia Pacific network to 17 destinations, served out of Detroit, Seattle and Los Angeles, and via its hub at Tokyo Narita airport.
