Korean Air and Delta expand their codeshare agreement to include over 100 U.S. and Canadian destinations and 30 cities in Asia. The agreement comes when Delta has announced it is adding a new service between Atlanta and Seoul starting June 3, 2017.  This non-stop flight will operate a Boeing 777-200LR with 291- seats. 

"Delta and Korean Air are expanding a 20+ year trans-Pacific partnership, and we believe the new Delta service between Atlanta and Seoul in conjunction with an enhanced partnership with Korean solidifies our joint position as leading carriers in the U.S.-Asia market," said Steve Sear, Delta's President – International & Executive Vice President – Global Sales. "Incheon International Airport is one of the premier gateways to Asia and the strength of our combined hubs and flight offerings gives customers a significantly enhanced portfolio of destinations for travel."

"Our expanded partnership with Delta allows our customers to travel more conveniently with more options between Asia and the Americas, strengthening our position as the world's largest trans-Pacific airline," said Walter Cho, Korean Air's C.O.O.  "Travelers will benefit from the combined network strength of Korean Air and Delta resulting in greater schedule flexibility and increased frequency."

The codeshare will benefit customers of both airlines.
