Delta Air Lines announced the expansion of flights to Shanghai-Pudong International Airport (PVG) today.

Starting October 29th, the carrier will offer 10x weekly service from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) and Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW). This includes daily service from Seattle and 3x weekly flights from Detroit. In March, Delta will bring back flights between Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Shanghai-Pudong International Airport (PVG). It discontinued this route in February 2020 and will resume 4x weekly.


Delta’s flights to Seattle will use an Airbus A330-900, while Detroit and Los Angeles will see an Airbus A350-900 handle the routes. Each of these aircraft offer Delta One®, Premium Select, Comfort+, and Main Cabin seating.

Jeff Moomaw, Delta’s Vice President – Asia Pacific, said:

As demand continues to increase and the busy travel season to the Asia-Pacific region commences, the Delta team is ready to welcome even more travelers to the region this winter, providing our award-winning customer service on every journey.”

This announcement comes shortly after United Airlines stated that its flights to Shanghai would increase frequency on October 1st and Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) would be starting in November.

Anthony’s Take: I have never been to mainland China. Hong Kong and Taiwan many times, but never mainland China. With service resuming, I might have to check off that box.
