Korean Air Launches Flights to Boston, USA

Korean Air has launched non-stop flights between Boston and Seoul.

The new Boston flights, along with Minneapolis/St. Paul-Seoul and Seattle-Osaka services that Delta is launching, are the first additions to the joint venture’s Transpacific network since the two carriers launched their partnership last May.

“As a major gateway for high tech industries, Boston is the most popular unserved point from Korea with rapidly growing demand to Asia,” said the airline’s Vice President of Marketing, John Jackson. “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 operate five days a week on Korean Air’s new 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft with six First Class sleeper suites, 18 Prestige business class suites, and 245 seats in economy class.

First Class features farm-to-flight meals with food grown at the airline’s own farm on Jeju Island, a 23-inch high-resolution monitor, duvet and bedding and in-flight comfort clothing by Gianfranco Ferre.

Korean Air’s Prestige Suites offer 21-inch wide flatbed seats spaced 75 inches apart with direct aisle access. Onboard, Prestige customers enjoy Korean Air’s food and wine program and a premium amenity kit.

 Korean Air’s economy class is among the industry’s most comfortable, with 33-34 inches between seats, a 10.6-inch high-resolution personal monitor and a variety of meal options.

Massport Acting CEO John Pranckevicius said, “We welcome Korean Air to Boston Logan International Airport. This new nonstop flight to South Korea connects New England with one of the world’s largest economies in the globe. Korean Air’s commitment to fly 5 days a week to Boston also promotes tourism and bridges a gap in a growing global economy.”
