Delta Air Lines said it will add new nonstop service from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to both Seoul-Incheon International Airport in Korea and Hong Kong International Airport.

The Seattle-Seoul flight will begin on June 2, 2014, with flights from Seoul starting on June 3. The Seattle-Hong Kong service will start later that month on June 16, with Hong Kong-Seattle service starting on the 18th.  Both are subject to government approval.

The Seoul flight will be operated using a Boeing 767-300ER with 35 lie-flat seats in the business-class cabin, 32 seats in premium economy, and 143 seats in the main cabin.  The business-class seats are arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration and are pitched, on average, at 80” with a width of 21”.

Flights to and from Hong Kong will operate using an Airbus A330-200.  The A330 has 34 lie-flat seats, also in a 1-2-1 configuration, with a seat pitch of 80” and a width of 21”.  The aircraft also has 32 premium economy seats and 168 seats in the main cabin.

Delta already offers service to Shanghai, Beijing, and Tokyo from Seattle and a total of 17 destinations in the Asia-Pacific region from its gateways in Detroit, Los Angeles, and Seattle.
