Next year, for the first time since 2017, Delta Air Lines will fly to Taiwan.
Delta on Thursday announced the addition of daily nonstop service from Seattle to Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport in Taipei, the busiest and largest airport in Taiwan. It will be the first direct service to Taipei from the U.S. ever for Delta, and the first Delta flight into Taipei since 2017, the last year Delta flew into the hub via Narita International Airport.
Delta will operate the service on an Airbus A330-900neo, which includes Delta One Suites, Delta Premium Select, Delta Comfort+, and Main Cabin seats.
“This route not only opens new doors to Taipei’s captivating skyline, vibrant night markets, and rich cultural heritage, but it also marks a significant stride in enhancing Seattle's global connectivity,” said Joan Wang, Managing Director – Global Sales, Seattle. “This strategic addition to Delta's trans-Pacific portfolio is poised to make a profound impact on the Seattle market, fostering increased business and leisure travel opportunities for our discerning customers.”
The flight joins a slew of new service Delta has announced, or started, recently. Others include the resumption of service from Honolulu and Minneapolis to Haneda Airport in Tokyo, the first-ever Los Angeles to Auckland service, and direct service to the new Tulum International Airport.
