Delta's A350 to head to Seoul

Delta has confirmed it will utilize its new Airbus A350 aircraft, featuring the Delta One and Delta Premium Select cabins on its route between its home base of Atlanta and the capital of South Korea, Seoul, beginning 24th March '18.

The route, which debuted in June, links Delta’s Atlanta hub, the world’s busiest airport hub operation, to Seoul-Incheon, home of Delta’s trans-Pacific joint venture partner Korean Air.

“We’re very excited that our flagship international product on the new A350 will link customers across these two important hubs across the pacific,” said Steve Sear, Delta’s President — International and Executive Vice President of Global Sales. “Delta is focused on improving the customer experience in-flight through our innovative and thoughtful products and services.”

Today, the onboard experience between Atlanta and Seoul-Incheon is on Delta’s Boeing 777-200LR aircraft offering 37 Delta One, 36 Delta Comfort+ and 218 Main Cabin seats.

Delta’s first A350 flight is scheduled for Oct. 30 from Detroit to Tokyo-Narita. The state-of-the-art widebody aircraft will also fly between Detroit and Seoul-Incheon beginning in November and Detroit and Beijing beginning in January.


Last week Delta announced its plan to link Central Florida to The Netherlands and dozens of convenient connections into Europe will come to fruition in March next year when they launch flights from Orlando International Airport and Amsterdam's Schiphol airport. 

“Our new flight will be the only daily nonstop service between Orlando and Amsterdam improving access between these cities,” said Dwight James, Delta’s Senior Vice President - Trans-Atlantic. “Not only are we enabling customers’ easy access to Florida’s main attractions, but our partnership with Air France, KLM and Alitalia makes connecting throughout Europe easy and convenient via our Amsterdam hub.”

Delta’s onboard experience between Orlando and Amsterdam will be on Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, equipped with Delta One, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin seating. Every seat has Wi-Fi, a personal, in-flight seatback entertainment screen as well as power ports. Complimentary meals and beverages will also be provided in all cabins.
