Korean Air is will launch a new non-stop service between Boston and Seoul on April 12th next year, in cooperation with joint venture partner Delta Air Lines.
The new Boston flight, along with new Minneapolis/St. Paul-Seoul service that Delta is launching in 2019, are the first additions to the joint venture’s Seoul-Incheon network since the two carriers launched their partnership in May.
“By combining the schedules of Korean Air and Delta, our customers are able to enjoy unparalleled travel options,” said John Jackson, Korean Air managing vice president.
“Our joint venture is undeniably the strongest transpacific partnership and provides both of our airlines with a solid competitive edge.”
Customers can access 290 destinations on Delta in the Americas and 80 destinations in Asia on Korean Air.
This past January, Korean and Delta co-located in the industry-leading Incheon Terminal 2, making connections between Asia and America some of the industry’s quickest.
“As a major gateway for high tech industries, Boston is the most popular unserved point from Korea with rapidly growing demand to Asia,” said Jackson
“The city, with its numerous universities and colleges, is a growing New England hub attracting companies in fast-growing industries like IT, bio-technology, healthcare, finance and pharmaceuticals.”
Korean Air and Delta are investing in Boston, and this new flight to Seoul adds a key link that the joint venture partners offer Boston-area customers.
Beyond Seoul, travellers can access nearly all of Asia on Korean Air with a unique customer experience at Incheon’s Terminal 2 featuring efficient and seamless connections and four elegant Korean Air lounges, plus other lounges dedicated to transfer passengers in all cabins with complementary showers and sleep areas.
