Delta Air Lines said it would add almost 1,000 flights to its July schedule, compared to the previous month.

Earlier in the week, the airline said had received permission from the Chinese government  to restart its service to Shanghai from both Seattle and Detroit, with two weekly flights from each hub.

Other returning flights will include non-stops from a variety of cities to its hubs in Atlanta, Detroit, Minneapolis, and Salt Lake City.

The list will also include the resumption of daily non-stop service from New York to Athens and from Seattle to Amsterdam, as well as Detroit to Paris.

Also resuming will be non-stop service from New York to Lisbon and from Boston to Amsterdam. Both will operate four times per week.

The airline said it will operate 25% of its schedule to the Caribbean compared to the same period in 2019, a significant increase from having operated only 10% of its schedule in June.

Delta said that, in order to keep middle seats open, it would upgauge aircraft size where necessary and also add more flights if demand further increases.

In addition, Delta plans to restore weekly flights from Atlanta to Seoul.
