Korean Air recently announced that it will open new passenger routes to China and the Philippines in the second half of 2019. The three new routes in China are: Nanjing-Seoul, Hangzhou-Seoul and Zhangjiajie-Seoul routes.
Nanjing is a famous historical and cultural city in China. It is one of the seven ancient capitals of China and an important economic and cultural center in eastern China. Hangzhou was once the seat of the Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea during the Anti-Japanese War. It is a world-famous garden city and was once described by the Italian traveler Marco Polo as “the most beautiful and prosperous city in the world”. Zhangjiajie is a famous tourist city. It is famous for its unique landform features and is a paradise for adventure travelers. With the opening of three new routes in China, the route network of Korean Air China will be more abundant, bringing more convenience to the travel of tourists from both countries and further contributing to the development of local tourism.
At the same time, Korean Air will also open scheduled flights from Seoul to Clark in the Philippines at the end of October this year. Clark is a famous tourist city in the Philippines where visitors can experience a variety of outdoor activities such as snorkeling, hot air ballooning, hot springs and golf. It is ideal for family and children. The opening of the route provides a richer and more convenient choice for Chinese tourists to travel during the end of the year and the Spring Festival holiday.
In addition to the above four new routes, Korean Air will also increase the number of flights on some popular routes to provide passengers with a better travel experience. From September 1st, 2019, the Korean Air Seoul-Delhi route will increase from 5 classes per week to 7 classes per week. From the end of October, the Beijing-Incheon route will also increase from the current 14 classes per week to 18 classes per week.
At the same time, due to the decline in passenger demand, Korean Air will also suspend the Incheon-Nandi route from October 1. The move is to optimize the route layout based on passenger travel needs, improve operational efficiency and passenger satisfaction. For passengers who have already booked the route, Korean Air will assist passengers in changing the reservation in advance, minimizing inconvenience.
