DSC_1536Delta Air Lines and Korean Air announced that the two signed a memorandum of understanding that will lead to a transpacific joint venture between the two.

The agreement would see the two carriers share the cost and revenue on flights, as well as coordinate schedules. In addition, members of Delta’s SkyMiles and Korean’s Skypass frequent flyer programs would be able to earn and redeem miles on flights operated by the other carrier.

Once in place, the joint venture, which is subject to regulatory approval, would create a combined network of over 290 destinations in the Americas, and over 80 throughout Asia.

Delta plans to begin previously announced service between Atlanta and Seoul this June, while Korean will launch a third flight between Los Angeles and Seoul, as well as a second flight between San Francisco and Seoul this summer.
