Delta Resumes Flights Between U.S. and Shanghai

Rainy night in Shanghai, China.

This week, Delta Air Lines resumed flights between Seattle and Shanghai-Pudong via Seoul-Incheon operating twice-weekly. Starting July 1, the carrier will operate once-weekly flights to Shanghai from both Seattle and Detroit. Both routes will operate via Seoul as well.

Delta is the first U.S. airline to re-connect the U.S. and China since the temporary suspension in February due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Tickets are open for booking on all channels including Delta.com, Fly Delta app, agencies, and online travel agencies.

“We are excited to resume our services between the U.S. and China, as economic and social activities start to recover,” said Wong Hong, Delta’s President – Greater China and Singapore. “With a mission to connect the world, Delta is committed to getting our customers to their destinations safely and confidently, especially at this critical time. We are implementing unprecedented health and safety measures and practices, so customers are assured of ease and safety at all points of their journey.”

The Shanghai Pudong-Seattle flights will be served with Delta’s A350 aircraft and will transition to the new Airbus A330-900 in August. The flights from Detroit will also feature the A350.

Delta has implemented a number of safety measures and procedures to ensure safe travel options for both passengers and crew. These measures include blocking middle seats and reducing the number of customers on each flight. For international flights, Delta is capping seating at 75% in Delta One suite, and 60% in Delta Premium Select and Main Cabin. Additionally, customers are encouraged to check outbound/entry policies regarding COVID-19 testing and screening in China and the U.S.
