Delta Air Lines launched eight new routes in the last week, of which an entire six were intercontinental services. Asian services dominated, with Detroit (DTW) seeing the launch of flights to Hong Kong (HKG) and Seoul Incheon (ICN), while Seattle (SEA) had flights added to Beijing (PEK) and Osaka Kansai (KIX). Delta already serves all destinations but Osaka Kansai from its Tokyo Narita hub. It does, however, already serve Osaka from Guam and Honolulu. From New York JFK (JFK) and Atlanta (ATL), there was rather an African focus, with flights launched to Abuja (ABV) and Accra (ACC) respectively. Notably, Delta already serves Accra from New York. Flights were also launched to Honolulu (HNL) from both Detroit and San Diego (SAN).
