Korean Air has announced its Incheon-Toronto service will go daily from four-times-weekly effective August 14.
“With this additional service, Seoul and more than 35 cities in China and Southeast Asia will be more accessible to more Canadian travellers,” said John Jackson, marketing director for the Americas at Korean Air.
The move came on the heels of an open skies agreement sealed two weeks ago between South Korea and Canada.
The new air pact allows carriers from both countries to operate scheduled passenger services without frequency limits to and from any destination in either country.
The agreement also allows both countries’ carriers to pick up passengers in South Korea and Canada while on a stopover en route to a third country.
Canada currently has bilateral air agreements with 79 territories worldwide including 12 in the Asia-Pacific region such as Australia, New Zealand, Hongkong, Japan, the Philippines and Singapore.
