American Airlines has launched daily non-stop service between Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Incheon International Airport in Seoul, South Korea - reinforcing American’s commitment to expanding and strengthening its global presence, especially in the Asia-Pacific region.
Through American’s extensive network from Dallas/Fort Worth, customers travelling from South Korea now have one-stop access to nearly 200 additional destinations.
The new service is operated as part of American’s joint business agreement with fellow oneworld alliance member Japan Airlines.
Through oneworld member airlines and their affiliates, American’s customers have access to more than 145 destinations within Asia.
“South Korea’s continued growth as a key business market has created increased demand for direct travel to and from the region,” said Chuck Schubert, American vice president, network planning.
“This new route enhances our expanding global network and further establishes American’s position as the preferred carrier for one-stop connections between Asia and major business and leisure destinations in North, Central and South America.”
“The new daily service to Seoul on American Airlines represents more outstanding news for travellers in Dallas/Fort Worth and for DFW Airport,” said Jeff Fegan, chief executive, DFW Airport.
“At DFW, it is our mission to deliver a world class travel experience for visitors to Dallas/Fort Worth as well as to expand our region’s presence and visibility around the globe, and this new service from our great partners at American will help bring more business and leisure travellers and economic opportunities.”
