Delta Air Lines launched nonstop service from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to Hong Kong on Monday. The new market is Delta's latest addition in the buildup of its Seattle hub and its fifth new international destination from Seattle in the last year.
With the launch of Hong Kong service, Delta customers now have nonstop access to nine long-haul international destinations from Seattle - more than all other airlines combined - including the top five destinations in Asia and three of the top four destinations in Europe. Delta is the only carrier to offer nonstop service from Seattle to Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Paris, Shanghai and Tokyo-Haneda.
Delta currently operates 76 peak-day departures to 25 destinations from Seattle. Delta has increased its peak-day departures by more than 30 percent since a year ago and by December will offer 95 peak-day departures to 33 destinations, making it Seattle's fastest-growing airline.
