Seoul-based carrier Korean Air is to move from a morning to an evening departure on its service from Gatwick.
The airline launched its Seoul-Gatwick flights in April, complementing its existing Heathrow service.
The current schedules see flights departing Seoul at 1845 on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, arriving into Gatwick at 2255, with the return leg leaving Gatwick at 1030 on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, landing back into Seoul at 0525 the following day.
From October 30 this will change to a 1530 departure from Seoul on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, arriving into Gatwick at 1840, with the aircraft being turned around that evening and leaving at 2040, landing back into Seoul at 1625 the following day.
The flights will continue to be served by a three-class B777-200 aircraft.
The move will see both of Korean Air’s London services departing the capital in the evening – the carrier’s daily Heathrow flights currently depart at 1935, landing into Seoul at 1420 the following day. Rival carrier Asiana also operates daily evening flights from Heathrow, departing at 2100.
