DSC_1536Delta Air Lines announced the start of a new trans-Pacific joint venture with Korean Air.

Under the new joint venture, the two carriers will have a combined network of over 290 destinations throughout Asia and the Americas. The two will also offer more codeshares in the trans-Pacific market than they currently do.

In addition, the carriers will begin joint sales in Asia and the United States. Members of Delta’s SkyMiles and Korean’s Skypass frequent flyer programs will also be able to earn and redeem miles on flights operated by the other airlines.

Prior to the joint venture, Delta recently began new service between Atlanta and Seoul, South Korean, complementing Korean Air’s existing service between the two cities. Meanwhile, Korean Air plans to launch a third flight between Los Angeles and Seoul this summer, as well as a second between Seoul and San Francisco.
