Korean Air will fly the A380 from Incheon to New York JFK twice daily starting in May.
The carrier currently offers a twice-daily superjumbo service to Los Angeles and a daily A380 flight to New York.
“We have the most competitive service for the US business traveller to Southeast Asia and Korea,” said John Jackson, the airline’s vice president of sales and marketing for the Americas. “When you combine our A380’s comforts with our schedule and service, we offer a strong value proposition and travellers are responding very well.”
Korean Air’s superjumbo offers 407 seats, including 90 full flat sleeper suites. Click here for the review of the airline’s A380.
The additional flight to JFK indicates the airline’s commitment to US destinations, as last month it announced the introduction of a non-stop flight from Incheon to Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport four times a week from May (see here). According to Jackson, the response was so encouraging that the airline decided to launch a daily service to and from America’s fourth largest city.
