Korean Air Makes Changes to Global Network

Korean Air has made the following changes to its network.

Commencing December 2016, Korean Air will introduce direct flights to New Delhi, India.

From the last week of September, and after the Rio Olympic Games, Korean Air will suspend its thrice weekly flights between Incheon and Sao Paolo. To accommodate the affected tourists and the Korean community in Brazil, Korean Air will strengthen its cooperation with US carriers flying to Brazil.

Korean Air is also reducing the frequency of flights between Incheon and Jakarta from ten to seven flights weekly from September. The affected flights are KE625 and KE626, which operate on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. The daily service of KE627/8 will be maintained without change.

The airline has also unveiled that it is considering operating a route to Iran in the future. Following the lifting of economic sanctions, Iran is emerging as a world magnet for investment and an important global hub. In March 2016, Korean Air was granted permission to operate four flights weekly between Incheon and Teheran. Korean Air said it will decide the timing of the launch of its route to Teheran following the completion of a market conditions and financial trade environment study.
