Korean Air launched its scheduled service to Canada on 2 November 1988 with DC-10 jetliner flying the Seoul-Vancouver-Toronto route two times per week. Korean Air split the route into separate Vancouver and Toronto services in December 1995.

The airline has carried a total of 320,000 passengers on the two routes, with 170,000 and 150,000 passengers on the Vancouver and Toronto routes respectively.

Korean Air operates daily direct flights to Vancouver, and operates flights to Toronto five times a week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during winter, and a daily service during summer.
