Delta launching Seoul flights from Atlanta

Delta Air Lines will launch flights from Atlanta to Seoul starting next June, adding to the route operated by its partner Korean Air.

Atlanta-based Delta will operate daily Atlanta-Seoul flights on 291-seat Boeing 777-200LR jets starting June 3.

Korean Air already operates daily Seoul-Atlanta flights on Boeing 777-300ER jets. Delta already operates flights to Seoul from Detroit and Seattle.

As Delta adds the new flights to Seoul, it is expanding its "code-share" marketing agreement with Korean Air, which will enable passengers to connect through Seoul to 32 other destinations in Asia.
