Korean Air will continue rebuilding its global network by resuming services to multiple Chinese and Japanese destinations in the coming months.

Notably, due to the airline’s geographical positioning, it could not resume certain destinations due to the restrictions felt by the global pandemic.

However, destinations including Changsha, Wuhan, Weihai, Fukuoka and Nagoya will resume after a multi-year absence totalling almost four years.

The airline says that the Seoul Incheon-Changsha has been the first to resume with a five times weekly flight beginning yesterday, July 19th.

Meanwhile, Seoul Incheon-Wuhan will recommence on September 24th, with Seoul Incheon-Weihai set to take to the skies once more three days later on September 27th.

Korean Air says it’s seeing solid international travel demand and, as such, believes increasing frequencies and continuing its network rebuild couldn’t come at a better time. As of July 2023, the airline has reported an ASK, available seat kilometre capacity of 82% and is seeing solid load factors.

While China and Asia have been the focus of the most recent announcement, Korean Air has kept a close eye on the North American market alongside Southeast Asia, with Dallas, Chicago and San Francisco seeing increases, followed by Sapparo and Bali, respectively.
