Korean Air Boosts China Service

 Korean Air is adding over a dozen weekly flights to China, reinforcing its position as the largest airline between the Americas and Asia.

In addition to more flights, Korean Air is improving its schedule from Beijing to its Incheon hub, offering new early morning departures with same-day connections to the central and eastern regions of North America. The airline also has increased service between Incheon and Guangzhou, adding three weekly flights to that city.

In all, Korean Air is increasing flights to six Chinese cities and adding 15 more flights to China each week.

'We are enhancing our industry-leading position," said John Jackson, Korean Air's Vice President of Marketing & Sales for the Americas. "We've said we're bullish on the Americas and our actions are speaking loud and clear. We have great schedules to China and Southeast Asia from our gateways in the Americas and we're building on that strength."

Jackson said "these changes will benefit travelers most in Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Washington DC and Toronto. Our Eastern gateways will definitely have more access to China."

Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Wuhan, Mudanjiang and Yanji are the Chinese cities with enhanced service.

Korean Air serves 14 North and South American gateways with a fleet of A380s, B747s and B777s, all configured with lie-flat, comfortable seats in Prestige (Business Class) and featuring Korean Air's award-winning service, absorbing inflight entertainment and extensive duty-free shopping.
