Premier airlines Delta Air and Korean Air have signed an agreement boosting their partnership earlier this week, as they aim to provide a more intensive travel experience to their customers. A memorandum of understanding was signed by both parties to officially seal the arrangement, which basically entails a seamless partnership between both airlines.

In the press release posted by Delta, some highlights that were agreed on include: "The intent to create a fully integrated trans-Pacific joint venture arrangement, with both airlines sharing the costs and revenues on flights and coordinating schedules for seamless, convenient connections; Enhanced frequent flyer benefits, providing customers of both airlines the ability to earn and redeem miles on Delta's SkyMiles and Korean Air's SKYPASS programs, and a combined network, serving more than 290 destinations in the Americas and more than 80 in Asia, providing customers of both airlines with more travel choices than ever before." The agreement also aims to boost competition in the U.S. and Asia.

Both airlines have started to integrate their partnership in their newest services. Starting June this year, Delta will be launching a nonstop service between Atlanta and Seoul, complementing Korean Air's existing service. Meanwhile, the third roundtrip between Los Angeles and Seoul will be put into effect sometime later this summer, as Korean Air expands its U.S. - Korea network.

Both present in the signing of agreement is Yang Ho Cho, Korean Air's Chairman and CEO, and Delta CEO Ed Bastian. Both leaders are especially glad in this deeper relationship between both airlines, a venture they hope to be fruitful in the next coming years.

The agreement is still subjected to regulatory approvals and signing of definitive contracts, according to Breaking Travel News, but the airlines' are positive about the outcome. More travel choices await the loyal customers of Delta and Korean Air, and with this new venture, earning mileages will be easier than before.
