Korean Air Increases Flights to Key Long Haul Destinations

For the summer 2018 season, which commenced on 25 March, Korean Air has increased service frequency on key long haul routes between Korean Airís hub at Incheon International Airport in Seoul and Europe and America.

A significant change in Korean Airís schedule is the increase in flight frequency to provide passengers flying to North America with a wider range of choice.

 Flights between Incheon and Dallas, Texas have increased from four times a week to five times a week (Mon/Wed/Thu/Sat/Sun). The Incheon-Toronto flight has increased from five times a week to a daily flight while the Incheon-Seattle flight will also have the same increase to daily flights as from 1 May 2018.

In addition, Korean Air has also boosted the frequency of some European routes; the Incheon-Rome service has gone daily and the Incheon-Prague flight increased to four times a week (Mon/Wed/Fri/Sat). The Incheon to Madrid service is now being operated four days a week (Tue/Thu/Sat/Sun) and the flights between Incheon and Istanbul have also been increased to four times a week (Mon/Wed/Fri/Sun).

Meanwhile, as from 19 April Korean Air will resume operating its direct flight to St. Petersburg and from 23 April to Irkutsk. These Russian routes do not operate in the winter season due to low demand.

Korean Air will deploy recently introduced aircraft, such as B787-9 and B747-8i, on the main American and European long-haul routes, where the demand is expected to grow during the summer vacation season.

It is usual for international airlines to have summer and winter schedules. The summer schedule begins on the last Sunday of March, with the winter schedule commencing on the last Sunday of October. The official summer schedule for 2018 will therefore run from 25 March until 27 October.
