Korean Air unveiled plans for an overhaul of its international route map, including the introduction of a new direct service to Delhi.
The non-stop flights linking Seoul’s Incheon International Airport with the Indian capital will launch in December 2016. Delhi will become Korean Air’s second destination in India, following Mumbai.
In addition, the airline said it is considering launching its first flights it Iran, having recently received permission to operate four weekly services between Seoul and Tehran.
Other international routes will be cut, however. Following the end of the Olympic Games in Rio, Korean Air will suspend its three weekly flights to Sao Paolo. The airline said this suspension is due to “low demand following the economic downturn in Brazil”.
And Korean Air will also reduce the frequency of flights between Seoul and Jakarta from 10 to seven per week from September 2016.
