Korean Air introduces new routes in the Philippines and China

Along with Clark in the Philippines, Korean Air now also flies to three new Chinese destinations – Nanjing, Zhangjiajie and Hangzhou

 

Korean Air has launched new flights to Clark, a resort town on the central island of Luzon in the Philippines, which is about two hours by land from capital city Manila. The Incheon-Clark route operates seven times a week.

Along with the Filipino addition, Korean Air has also launched three new Chinese destinations, namely Nanjing, Zhangjiajie and Hangzhou. Nanjing is well-known as the centre of electronics, petrochemical and automobile industries, while Zhangjiajie is a leading tourist destination in China, which has been listed as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site due to its excellent natural scenery. Hangzhou is famous for its artificial West Lake, and is also known as the centre of China’s IT industry as it is home to the headquarters of e-commerce company Alibaba.

The Incheon-Nanjing route operates four times a week (Monday/Wednesday/Friday/Sunday); the Incheon-Zhangjiajie route three times a week (Monday/Wednesday/Saturday); and the Incheon- Hangzhou route twice a week (Monday/Friday).

In addition to the new services, Korean Air is also endeavoring to achieve route competitiveness and enhance profitability by expanding its capacity on Southeast Asia, China and Oceania routes, following the falling demand and capacity on Japanese routes.

On top of that, Korean Air is also operating chartered flights on the Incheon-Athens/Amman/Cairo and Incheon-Auckland routes, and plans to provide more convenient schedules through the development of new routes to meet future customer demand.
