Korean Air Makes Network Changes for 2018
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.
