Korean Air is adding more than a dozen weekly flights to China.
In addition to more flights, Korean Air is improving its schedule from Beijing to its Incheon hub, offering new early morning departures with same-day connections to the central and eastern regions of North America.
The airline also has increased service between Incheon and Guangzhou, adding three weekly flights to that city.
In all, Korean Air is increasing flights to six Chinese cities and adding 15 more flights to China each week.
“We’ve said we’re bullish on the Americas and our actions are speaking loud and clear,” said John Jackson, Korean Air’s vice-president of marketing and sales for the Americas. “We have great schedules to China and Southeast Asia from our gateways in the Americas and we’re building on that strength.”
Jackson added, “these changes will benefit travellers most in Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Washington DC and Toronto. Our Eastern gateways will definitely have more access to China.”
Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Wuhan, Mudanjiang and Yanji are the Chinese cities with enhanced service.
