Korean Air has announced changes to its flight schedule for the 2019 summer season commencing 31 March until 26 October – including new routes, increasing service frequency on key routes that have shown steady growth and resuming seasonal routes which do not operate in the winter.

A significant change is the expansion of the Korean Air network with the launch of two new direct services. From 12 April, Korean Air will launch a non-stop scheduled service between Seoul and Boston, in cooperation with joint venture partner, Delta Air Lines.

Moreover, the departure of the flight from Incheon to Seattle will change to 16.40h, to create synergy with Delta’s strong network within the US and offer enhanced travel options to customers.

In addition, commencing 1 June, the airline will begin a direct service between Incheon and Asahikawa, Hokkaido, Japan five times a week.

In other changes, as from 31 March, flights between Incheon and Istanbul, Turkey increased from four to five times a week. The Incheon-Zagreb service, which has launched in September 2018, maintains operation three times a week.

As from 22 April Korean Air will resume operation of its direct flight to the Russian city Irkutsk and from 28 April to St. Petersburg. While these Russian routes do not operate in the winter season, they provide convenient flight options for leisure and business travelers travelling to Russia and Northern Europe during the summer.
