Korean Air has launched new routes, suspended
select flights and increased
service frequency on key routes for the 2018 winter season.
The airline will merge its recently launched Incheon
- Zagreb flights with Zurich so that the flight operates to Zurich via Zagreb
three times per week.
Incheon - Hong Kong flights have increased from 28 times
per week to 35 times a week, and Korean Air has also increased the frequency of
Incheon and Istanbul route to four times weekly, while
Incheon-Nha Trang has become a daily flight.
The airline will also increase the frequency of
some American routes in December and January, including the
Incheon-Seattle and the Incheon-Las Vegas service which both
change from five times a week to six times per week.
Korean Air also plans to launch a charter service
between Seoul and Chiang Rai in northern Thailand this winter.
During the winter season, Korean Air will suspend Incheon-St. Petersburg, Incheon-Irkutsk,
Incheon-Nanning, Busan-Hong Kong, and Busan-Guam flights.
Korean Air has also said that it will deploy
some of its newest aircraft
such as the B787-9, B747-8i, and A220-300 (CS-300) on the main routes
so that it can
provide a more comfortable flight experience.
