Korean Air expands presence in China

26 Feb 2015 by Clement Huang

Korean Air will launch four new routes to China in the first half of 2015.

The airline will begin operating an Incheon–Hefei service from March 30, Incheon–Nanning and Jeju–Guiyang from May 11, and Daegu–Shenyang on June 22. When launched, Korean Air will fly to more cities in China than any other airline from Korea.

First on the list is flight KE813, which will depart from Incheon every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 0830 and arrive in Hefei at 1010. The return KE814 flight will take off again from Hefei at 1110 and arrive back in Incehon at 1440.

Meanwhile, the flights to Nanning depart from Incheon every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1855 and arrive in Nanning at 2250. The flights to Guiyang depart from Jeju every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 2155 and arrive in Guiyang at 0045 next day.

Finally, the Daegu–Shenyang route will operate every Monday, Thursday and Saturday at 1000 with the arrival time in the Chinese city scheduled at 1110.

While Korean Air has not detailed the operating aircraft that it will deploy to Guiyang, the other three routes will be served by the B737-800 – all of which are equipped with AVOD inflight entertainment systems.
