After almost 5 months of halted flights, Delta Air Lines will resume service to China on June 25th. 

Wong Hong, Delta’s President of Greater China and Singapore division said in Monday’s press release, “We are excited to resume our services between the U.S. and China, as economic and social activities start to recover. 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 first flight will resume on Thursday and service Shanghai-Pudong via Seoul-Incheon from Seattle on an Airbus A350 aircraft. Flights will operate twice a week and next month, flights will operate once a week from Seattle and Detroit to Incheon. 

Prior to departing, all flights will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected and will only allow 60 percent capacity so passengers can social distance. 

Flights are currently available for booking on Delta’s website.
