Delta’s new service is between Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Shanghai Pudong International Airport starting in July 2018. The flight will provide convenient one-stop access to more than 150 destinations in the U.S. and Latin America from Shanghai. In addition, the flight will also provide access to more than 50 destinations in China with codeshare partner China Eastern.

"Strong demand for Delta service across the Pacific and to China nonstop from the U.S. as well as our China Eastern partnership make this route compelling for both business and leisure travelers," said Ed Bastian, Delta's Chief Executive Officer. "We look forward to connecting Delta's hometown and China Eastern's home with this route, while offering our customers innovative products, thoughtful in-flight service and leading operational reliability."

The flight creates a direct link between one of China's major commercial and industrial centers and Atlanta. The new flight adds to Delta's existing service to Seoul and Tokyo, providing Atlanta with non-stop service to the three largest markets in Asia and convenient one-stop access to more than 75 destinations in Asia with partners China Eastern and Korean Air.

"This is a huge win for Georgia jobs and businesses. I'm glad to see Delta leading the charge to connect the U.S. business sector to one of the world's largest financial hubs in Shanghai," said U.S. Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.)
