For the second consecutive year, Delta was named the Best Airline of North America 2016 by Flyertea, the largest frequent flyer website in China.
The Chinese travel industry recognizes the Flyertea Travel Awards as the most prestigious and unique awards in the industry because the winners are selected by real frequent travelers’ votes.
“The award is a testament that more customers recognize our efforts to build the most Chinese-friendly U.S. airline in the market,” said Wong Hong, Delta’s Vice President – Greater China. “We will continue to improve Chinese customers’ travel experience by listening to the frequent travelers’ voices.”
Delta operates 28 weekly departures to China's global financial center, Shanghai, from its key hubs in Los Angeles, Detroit, Seattle and Tokyo-Narita. Additionally, Delta offers 14 weekly departures to China's capital, Beijing, from its hubs in Seattle and Detroit. Delta has recently announced daily non-stop service between Los Angeles and Beijing to be launched December 2016, pending government approval.
