Korean Air to Launch Seoul - Boston Flights on 12 April 2019

Korean Air will launch nonstop flights between Boston and Seoul on 12 April  2019.

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.

“Korean Air is the largest Transpacific airline and we’ve been eyeing Boston for a long time,” said Korean Air’s Vice President of Marketing, John Jackson. “It makes sense, with our Delta joint venture, to start service there now. Delta is growing fast in Boston and adding an Asia flight will help them solidify their position as Boston’s #1 global airline. By combining the schedules of Delta and Korean Air, our customers are able to enjoy unparalleled travel options,” Jackson said. “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. Meanwhile, Korean and Delta are co-located in the world-renowned Incheon Terminal 2, making connections between Asia and America some of the industry’s quickest.

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, luxurious duvet and bedding and in-flight comfort clothing by Gianfranco Ferre. First class customers also can enjoy the exclusive benefits of a dedicated check-in lounge and First Class lounge at Incheon Airport.

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

Meanwhile, 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.

“Delta and its partners offer an unmatched global network that’s capable of taking Boston to the world, with the most international seats and direct flights to 19 international destinations this year – more than ever before,” said Steve Sear, Delta's President – International and Executive Vice President of Global Sales. “This new flight to Seoul will offer a key link to Asia and is a standout addition to our Boston route map as we bring the benefits of our JV partnership with Korean Air to Boston-area customers.”
