“By combining the schedules of Korean Air and Delta, our customers are able to enjoy unparalleled travel options,” said John Jackson, Korean Air’s managing vice president. “Our joint venture is undeniably the strongest transpacific partnership and provides both of our airlines with a solid competitive edge.”

Customers can access 290 destinations on Delta in the Americas and 80 destinations in Asia on Korean Air. This past January, Korean and Delta co-located to Incheon Terminal 2, making connections between Asia and America some of the industry’s quickest.

“As a major gateway for high tech industries, Boston is the most popular unserved point from Korea with rapidly growing demand to Asia,” Jackson added. “The city, with its numerous universities and colleges, is a growing New England hub attracting companies in fast-growing industries like IT, bio-technology, healthcare, finance and pharmaceuticals.”

The Boston-Seoul service will be operated on Korean Air’s new 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft featuring six First Class sleeper suites, 18 Prestige business class sleeper suites, and 245 seats in Economy Class.
