Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) made this announcement:
Delta Air Lines resumed its nonstop service between Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) and Seoul-Incheon International Airport (ICN) this week, the first of two Asia routes to return since they were paused at the beginning of the COVID 19 pandemic.
Delta’s nonstop service to Seoul marks the 25th international flight out of 30 to return to MSP. The ICN flight is the longest international route from MSP at more than 6,200 miles and a flight duration of more than 12 hours. Delta’s service to Tokyo-Haneda Airport, is tentatively set to restart in late March 2023.
MSP’s service to ICN began in April 2019 after the MSP Regional Air Service Partnership (RASP), a collaborative air service development initiative between the MAC and GREATER MSP, identified the route as a major need for the region’s business community.
Delta’s MSP-ICN route is initially operating three times per week and will increase to daily service on October 29. The flight uses a flagship Airbus A350-900 aircraft that accommodates more than 300 passengers with a choice of four experiences –Delta One Suites, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+ and Main Cabin.
MSP’s overall recovery in passengers is 75%-80% compared to pre-pandemic levels.
