Korean Air to boost China connections in late 2019

Korean Air to boost China connections in late 2019

Korean Air will launch four new routes in the remaining part of the year - three to cities in China and one to the Philippines.

The airline will also increase the frequency of the Incheon-Delhi and Incheon-Beijing routes to meet demand.

However, the carrier will suspend its Incheon-Nadi, Fiji, operation.

The new China routes will see Korean Air fly from Incheon to Nanjing, Zhangjiajie and Hangzhou.

The carrier was granted traffic rights to these routes following successful Korea-China aviation talks in March.


Nanjing, one of the seven historical capitals of China, holds a rich cultural heritage, while Zhangjiajie is well known to travellers as the perfect city for trekking.

Hangzhou, a former home to Korean provisional government, was praised by the Italian explorer Marco Polo as ‘the most beautiful city in the world’.

Korean Air is also planning a new route in south-east Asia, with the carrier launching seven flights a week from Incheon to Clark in the Philippines at the end of October.

The destination is popular with family travellers and offers a variety of activities, such as golf and snorkelling.

Korean Air also intends to increase seat capacity on two popular routes.

The flag-carrier will boost the Incheon-Delhi route to seven flights a week from September 1st.

At the same time, the current 14 flights a week between Incheon and Beijing will be extended to 18 flights a week from the end of October. 

The Nadi route will be suspended from October 1st due to decreasing demands and a “constant deficit” on the route.
