Air New Zealand to Launch Flights Between Auckland and Seoul, South Korea

Air New Zealand has confirmed that it will launch direct flights between Auckland and Seoul, South Korea.

 From 23 November 2019, Air New Zealand will operate three services per week to Seoul's Incheon International Airport, increasing to five times a week during the peak holiday period from late December to mid-February.

The new route will be flown by the airline's Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner fleet with a flight time of around 12 hours northbound and just over 11 hours southbound.

Air New Zealand Chief Revenue Officer Cam Wallace says there's been a great response to the announcement that Seoul is now Air New Zealand's 32nd international destination.

"It's clear the new route is also going to be an important link for connecting the 40,000 Koreans living in New Zealand with friends and family back home as well as a convenient option for Korean visitors wanting to come and explore New Zealand."

For now tickets are available for purchase via Air New Zealand's local website and via travel agents in both New Zealand and South Korea. A Korean online storefront will be available soon.

Air New Zealand's proposed schedule between Auckland and Seoul from 23 November 2019 is as follows, subject to regulatory approvals and landing slot confirmation.
