Delta ups Asia connectivity with Atlanta-Incheon belly service

Delta ups Asia connectivity with Atlanta-Incheon belly service

Delta has expanded links between the US and Asia with new nonstop service between Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Seoul Incheon International Airport.

The inaugural flight departed on 3 June yesterday afternoon was at full cargo capacity with consolidated freight moves which included electronics, leather goods and hair care products.

The daily nonstop flight will operate a 30,000 pound payload Boeing 777-200LR aircraft, allowing for larger shipments.

The new route will offer large connectivity for cargo movements out of the US South-East to service customer needs with a direct service to Asia, in particular the large number of Korean automotive manufacturers located throughout Georgia and Alabama, such as Kia.

Combined with cargo’s freight forwarding partners, now the whole region can be reached utilising overnight trucking for next-day delivery from the Atlanta gateway.
