Korean Air announces a significant expansion of its international flight services for summer 2024, resuming routes to China, Europe, and Southeast Asia and increasing frequencies on key routes. This expansion aims to restore the airline’s capacity to nearly pre-pandemic levels.

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA – Korean Air will expand international services for the summer 2024 season starting from March 31. The airline will resume services to four cities in China, Europe and Southeast Asia, and increase flight frequencies on major routes.

The expansion will allow the airline’s international capacity to reach approximately 96% of pre-pandemic levels, measured by available seat kilometers (ASK).

Resuming routes to Europe, China and Southeast Asia

On April 2, the airline will resume three weekly flights between Seoul Incheon and Zurich to cater to the high demand for this popular summer destination.

From April 23, Korean Air will resume three weekly flights on the Seoul Incheon-Zhangjiajie route, famed for its designation as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site and where the fictional world of Pandora in the movie “Avatar” was filmed.

In addition, on April 24, Korean Air will resume its Seoul Incheon-Zhengzhou services, to operate four flights per week. Zhengzhou is a popular tourist destination in China featuring Taihangshan, often referred to as the “Grand Canyon of China.” Visitors may also hike Songshan, one of the Five Great Mountains of China, and visit Shaolin Temple, considered the birthplace of Kung Fu.

The airline will also resume daily flights on the Busan-Bangkok route on April 25, after nearly four years of hiatus due to the pandemic.

Increasing flight frequencies on major routes

In response to growing demand, Korean will also increase flight frequencies on popular routes in Europe, Southeast Asia and North America. Korean Air will increase flight frequencies on the Seoul Incheon-Budapest from three to four weekly flights. Budapest is a popular tourist destination and a manufacturing base for battery and automotive component companies.

The Seoul Incheon-Bangkok route will increase from three to four daily flights, and the Seoul Incheon-Manila route will increase from two to three daily flights. Since January, the airline has also added two additional frequencies on the Seoul Incheon-Bali route to offer eleven weekly flights, offering travelers greater flexibility and choice.

In North America, Korean Air will increase services on the Seoul Incheon-Dallas route from four flights per week to daily flights. As a gateway to the south-central United States, the daily flights will facilitate enhanced connectivity for passengers traveling to and from the dynamic city.

Korean Air will continue to monitor seasonal elements that affect demand on its expansive global network to provide optimal schedules and enhance customer experience.
