Some airlines have such great PR strategies that they have become very well-known. Even to those who have never ever been onboard a plane! Then there are the airlines that don’t create much buzz, but their passengers praise their inflight service. Korean Air belongs to this second category.
Founded back in 1962, the flag carrier South Korea has been growing steadily. Now travelers recognize them as one of the leading airlines in Asia.

Today we’ve decided to provide you with this quick overview of Korean Air for a good reason. On the 29th of April, Korean Air has launched a second nonstop flight service. This route is between San Francisco Intl. Airport (SFO) and Incheon Intl. Airport (ICN) in Korea. It will fly five times a week initially, and in June it will fly six times a week. They are hoping to operate it daily by September using the latest Boeing 777-300ER.
Korean Air has timed the second flight for convenient connections within Seoul and they have an extensive network of service to China, Southeast Asia, Japan, and Oceania. Night and Day flights between San Francisco and Seoul allow travelers enough time for business or leisure. This also allows them enough time to get to or connect through both airports for departure. This is great news for US travelers who are now even better connected to any destination in Asia.
