Korean Air increases flights to Americas and Japan

HONG KONG —

Korean Air has unveiled details of its flight schedule adjustment plans for the upcoming spring-summer season, from March 31 to Oct 26.

The carrier will strengthen its routes to the Americas and provide customers with widened flight options. The current 5 times a week flights from Seoul/Incheon to Seattle, Dallas and Toronto will be increased to 7 times a week (daily) and the 3 times weekly flights from Seoul/Incheon to Las Vegas will be increased to 4 times a week. In total, the frequency of Korean Air’s flights to the Americas will rise to 115 flights a week.

There will be significant changes in Korean Air’s flights to Japan. The airline expects an increase in demand on the Narita route due to the Open Skies agreement and it will increase frequency on its Seoul/Incheon ~ Tokyo/Narita route from 28 times a week to 35 times a week, operating 5 flights every day. In addition, the previous daily flights on the Seoul/Incheon ~ Narita ~ LA route will be put on the Seoul/Incheon ~ Narita ~ Honolulu route instead. Frequency on the Busan ~ Narita route will also increase from 7 times a week to 14 times a week, operating 2 flights every day.

Flights to other destinations in Japan are also being increased. The Seoul/Incheon ~ Komatsu route will increase from 4 times a week to 5 times a week and the Seoul/Incheon ~ Okayama route will change from 7 times a week to 9 times a week.

Korean Air will also strengthen its reach into the Chinese market by increasing frequency on the Cheongju ~ Hangzhou route (from once a week to 4 times a week) and opening a new 4 times weekly route between Busan and Nanjing.

The carrier will also reduce flights. Flights from Seoul/Incheon to Hakodate, Nagasaki, Melbourne and Gatwick (London) will be suspended and flight frequencies on the Seoul/Incheon ~ Jakarta and Seoul/Incheon ~ Ho Chi Min city routes will be reduced from 10 times a week to 7 times a week, and from 7 times a week to 4 times a week respectively.
