Delta Air Lines Inc to resume 50 flights on the international route

Delta Air Lines Inc yesterday said it is planning to continue 50 flights on the international route this winter and next year that were suspended because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“While significant hurdles remain in the global fight against the pandemic, we are ready to connect customers to the people, places, opportunities and experiences they’re longing for,” said Joe Esposito, senior vice president for network planning.

Delta said its continued service would include daily flights from Seattle to Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing and Shanghai.

In June, Delta said it would continue flights from Seattle to Shanghai, making it the first U.S. airline to reinstate operations between the United States and China after flights were suspended in February due to the pandemic.

The U.S. airline said earlier this week that it would resume blocking middle seats through at least Jan. 6, covering the key holiday season, but would increase the cap on the number of passengers on its flights in October.
