Delta Air Lines said Thursday that its planned joint venture with Korean Air, announced in March 2017, has been approved by U.S. and Korean regulatory authorities and that it is preparing to launch it soon.

The joint venture will expand on the two carriers’ long-time partnership, allowing them to share costs and revenues on trans-Pacific flights while coordinating schedules. For passengers, the news promises seamless connections and the ability to earn and redeem miles and points on the other airline’s program. It will also allow the two carriers to undertake joint sales and marketing efforts.

The Atlanta-based carrier said that the partnership had received approvals from the U.S. Department of Transportation as well as from the Korean Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport.

“We are delighted to announce the launch of our partnership with Delta. This partnership will bring more comfort to customers flying between Asia and the Americas,” said Yang Ho Cho, Korean Air’s chairman.
