(LOS ANGELES, CA, NOV. 30) - Korean Air, America’s largest Asian airline, is aggressively expanding on the U.S West Coast and strengthening its relationship with SkyTeam partner, Delta, to ensure the airline’s continued leadership in 2017 and beyond.
It’s doing this by increasing the number of Korean Air flights from Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas and creating a massive network between the U.S. and Asia through a blossoming partnership with Delta Airlines.
By June, Korean Air will operate almost 50 flights a week from the West Coast including 19 from Los Angeles, 14 from San Francisco beginning September, seven from Seattle and five from Las Vegas.
“We’ve added flights and improved our schedules for fast and easy connections to Singapore, China, Vietnam, Japan and almost any destination in Southeast Asia. Korean Air is the largest non-Chinese airline operating in China and our connections from the U.S. are outstanding,” says the airline’s Vice President, John Jackson.
Korean Air also will be enlarging its Delta network, offering Delta customers easy access to more than 30 markets in Asia beyond Seoul, and Korean Air customers more than 150 markets in the Americas.
“Delta will be putting its code on our flight from Houston, San Francisco and dozens of destinations beyond Seoul served by Korean Air,” Jackson says. “It’s exciting to see this relationship grow and I know it will prosper.”
Most importantly, Jackson says that Korean Air has been quietly building an impressive global network – 131 cities in 46 countries on six continents – and is poised to continue to build on that network in the future. “We have the latest aircraft with enormous creature comforts, service that’s way beyond expectations and a route map the spans the world. It’s a blueprint for success!” Jackson says.
