Delta and Korean announced a “world-class” joint venture back in March of this year and, since then, the two airlines have been working closely to increase the number of codeshare flights offered. Now Delta is adding a new route to Seoul.

Here’s what Delta has just announced:

“Delta customers will have more access to Seoul, Korea and Asia via new Delta service from its Minneapolis/St. Paul hub to Seoul-Incheon beginning next year in partnership with joint venture partner Korean Air. 

Thanks to the joint venture, Delta customers can access over 80 destinations Korean Air serves in Asia and a world-class customer experience at Seoul-Incheon’s new Terminal 2, the home of Delta and Korean Air.”

The schedule for the new route is now publicly available and this is what it looks like:

DL171 MSP 14:21 – 17:20+1 day ICN (Daily)
DL170 ICN 19:30 – 17:35 MSP (Daily)

Delta has confirmed that it will be using “newly refreshed 777-200ER aircraft with all new cabins” on this route which means that passengers in Business Class can expect to find the Delta One Suites onboard.
