There are some airlines that mastered PR at a level so high, that they become well-known even to those, who have never ever stepped on board of an aircraft. On the over hand, there are airlines, that don’t focus on creating so much buzz, yet their in-flight excellence is unanimously renowned by all travelers. Korean Air should, most probably, be attributed to the second category.

The flag carrier of South Korea is founded back in 1962, was growing steadily and is now recognized 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 29 April Korean Air has started a second nonstop flight between San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and Incheon International Airport (ICN) in Korea. Its second flight service initially features five-times-weekly service, increases to six weekly flights from June, then operates daily by September using the latest Boeing 777- 300ER.

Korean Air has timed the second flight to connect conveniently at Seoul, Incheon International Airport with an extensive network of service to China, Southeast Asia, Japan, and Oceania. With Day and Night flights between San Francisco and Seoul, travelers are allowed to have enough time for business or leisure activities, and to get to or connect through both airports for departure.
