Korean Air will launch cargo flights between
Incheon and Delhi, India on 17 July 2018.
Korean Air currently operates direct
passenger flights from Incheon to Mumbai and Delhi, each three and
five times a week.
Korean Air will operate the route with a Boeing 777F
thrice weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
The flight will depart from Incheon at 23:10,
make a stop in Hanoi, Vietnam, and arrive in Delhi at 06:15 the next day.
The return flight from Delhi to Incheon will
feature two stops, one in Vienna, Austria
and the other in Milan, Italy.
“Demand for air cargo from Asia to India has
shown a sharp boost recently, an average of 6.5% annual increase
in the last three years,” a Korean Air spokesperson said. “We are
anticipating new demand and improved profitability through
optimized cargo routes.”
The Boeing 777F has a maximum payload of over 100 tons. Once filled
with fuel, it can travel over 9,000 kilometers (5,593 miles).
