To help create a more convenient connecting experience, Delta Air Lines announced it has moved from Terminal 1 at Shanghai Pudong International Airport to the new Satellite Terminal.
The relocation will put Delta alongside partner China Eastern Airlines to make connecting flights seamless. While passengers arriving or departing from the Chinese airport will still have to check-in at Terminal 1, they will be transported to the Satellite Terminal by a mass rapid transit system.
China Eastern’s new VIP lounges at the Satellite Terminal will also be open to Delta One customers and SkyMiles Diamond, Platinum or Gold Medallion members.
“Delta is committed to continuously investing to improve customers’ on-the-ground and in-flight experience,” Delta President Wong Hong said in a statement. “This move is part of our broader strategy to collaborate with China Eastern to better address the growing needs of the U.S.-China market.”
At Shanghai Pudong Airport, Delta operates nonstop daily flights between the Chinese city and four U.S. gateways, including Detroit, Seattle, Los Angeles and Atlanta. The airline’s partnership with China Eastern also gives customers access to over 1,350 domestic flights per week to more than 40 cities across the country…
