Delta launches new route to Beijing from Detroit and between Minneapolis and Reno

  • Delta Air Lines launched two new routes on 1 July; one domestic and one intercontinental. From Minneapolis/St Paul (MSP), the airline now flies daily to Reno, NV (RNO) with 160-seat 737-800 aircraft. Flights operate seasonally until 6 September. From Detroit (DTW), the airline on the same day launched its third route to Beijing (PEK). Already serving the Chinese capital from Seattle and Tokyo Narita, Delta now also offers five weekly flights from the Motor City with 269-seat Boeing 777-200E/LR aircraft. Vinay Dube, Delta’s SVP Asia Pacific, commented: “With our new nonstop service between Detroit and Beijing, Delta continues to build our industry-leading trans-Pacific network, which provides convenient travel choices for our customers travelling to cities across Asia. As a major gateway to the region, our Detroit hub is a key part of our Asian network, and our new flight to Beijing will mean even more opportunities for economic development and job growth in the city.”
