Delta Airlines simply started service once again on the longest global flight readily available from here in Minnesota.
A sure indication that things are returning to regular … lastly … after the pandemic is just how much travel is occurring once again. And, how the airline companies are staffing back up to fulfill all that bottled-up need.
The news hasn’t been all favorable, though. Earlier this year, we heard how one airline was ENDING one of its more popular flights out of Minnesota beginning this winter season.
Of course, likewise previously this year, we ‘d heard how among Minnesota’s own Sun Country Airlines was adding a new flight from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) which is its fastest readily available. (And most likely among the least expensive, too, as fares begin around $10!)
But now comes news that Delta Airlines, which, obviously, has a significant center at MSP has actually begun service once again on the LONGEST global flight leaving from the Land of 10,000 Lakes: Service from the Twin Cities to Seoul, Korea.
According to a release from Metropolitan Airports Commission that operates MSP, the brand-new flight began on October 5th:
Delta Air Lines resumed its continuously service in between Minneapolis-St Paul International Airport (MSP) and Seoul-Incheon International Airport (ICN) recently, the very first of 2 Asia paths to return given that they were stopped briefly at the start of the COVID 19 pandemic.
The release went on to keep in mind that Delta’s continuously service to Seoul marks the 25th global flight out of 30 to go back to MSP. The ICN flight is the longest global path from MSP, clocking in at more than 6,200 miles and a flight period of more than 12 hours!
Delta stated that flight to ICN is being provided 3 times a week now through October 29th, when it will be provided daily. And, it likewise kept in mind that Delta has actually worked to restore its other continuously global flight services this year, having actually restored its path to London back in April.
Of course, here in southeast Minnesota, we’re fortunate because Rochester International Airport offers direct service to several cities, including Minneapolis.
