Flying in Asia-Pacific Just Got a Whole Lot Better

[SPONSORED CONTENT] Thanks to an ambitious new joint venture with Delta Airlines and some bold new flight schedule changes, Korean Air is about to kick air travel in the region up a notch.

Published on Apr 4, 2018

For years, Korean Air has been offering superb service to 730 million annual passengers on flight routes all around the world. The carrier already operates 460 flights per day to 123 cities in 43 countries, and thanks to a few bold new developments, it’s about to get even better. On March 25, the airline’s new summer flight schedules commenced, introducing more frequent long-haul routes from Incheon International Airport, Seoul and top destinations in North America and Europe. 

That’s good news for passengers planning a trip from the South Korean capital to Prague, Rome, Madrid, Istanbul, Toronto, Seattle or Dallas. Passengers on these routes will enjoy the comfort of ultra-modern aircraft such as the B787-9 and the B747-8i. Up next, the airline plans to resume operating direct flights to St. Petersburg on April 19 and Irkutsk on April 23. The summer schedule will remain in effect until October 27.

Finally, the biggest news of all is that Delta Air Lines and Korean Air recently announced a new joint venture partnership, which will offer travelers a host of benefits across one of the most comprehensive trans-Pacific route networks. That means improved connectivity, reciprocal loyalty benefit programs, across more than 290 destinations, including more than 80 in Asia and 290 in the Americas. No matter where in the world you want to go, it looks like the next few months are going to be a great time to fly.
