On Thursday (June 1, 2023), Delta Air Lines marked the 5th anniversary of their trans-Pacific joint venture (JV) with Korean Air. Since launching in May 2018, the JV has benefited over seven million customers, with over 2,000 passengers connecting each way via Seoul Incheon (ICN) daily. In celebration of the milestone, over 200 employees and partners of the joint venture held a celebration in Seoul on Thursday. Currently, the carriers offers 18 peak day departures between Seoul-Incheon and the U.S., facilitating connections to over 290 destinations in the Americas and more than 80 destinations in Asia in 44 countries.

At Thursday’s celebration in Seoul, Delta’s Executive Vice President – External Affairs, Peter Carter, said,

“We are proud of how we achieved the leading position in the trans-Pacific together with Korean Air the past five years, which is all thanks to the dedication of our people. We are also excited for how this best-in-class joint venture will continue to deliver for our customers, our business partners and our employees for many more years to come.”

“Through our five-year partnership, we have delivered exceptional convenience and services to our customers who fly with us across the Pacific and beyond. We are excited to continue bringing our customers the ultimate travel experience, as we keep evolving and strengthening our joint venture going forward.”

During the course of the partnership, Delta and Korean Air have introduced new service to Seoul from Minneapolis and Boston, launched seamless check-in powered by SkyTeam technology, and have aligned baggage allowances and priority boarding for corporate customers. Additionally, the JV has introduced reciprocal benefits for Delta SkyMiles and Korean Air SKYPASS members, and has reduced connection times with convenient flight schedules.
