Korean Air Returns To The US

South Korean carrier Korean Air has been slowly rebuilding its network recently, restoring its list of primary US destinations to a pre-March 2020 level. On December 31st, the airline issued a revised list of destinations, and most of its North American destinations are back – almost!

This updated list is a revision to a list previously published in November which already had the United States marked as a big market for the airline’s December operations.

Below are the airline’s North American destinations (from/between Seoul Incheon) and their associated frequencies:

Los Angeles: 11x per week. Flight KE011/012 is a daily service, while KE017/018 will take place on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

San Francisco: 5x per week with KE025/026 operating on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

Seattle: 3x per week. KE019/020 will take place on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.

New York: 7x per week with flight KE081/082 operating daily.

Boston: 3x per week with KE091/092 flying on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

Washington: 4x per week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays as KE093/094.

Dallas: 3x per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays as KE031/032.

Atlanta: 7x per week as KE035/036 operates once per day.

Chicago: 3x per week on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays as KE037/038.

Vancouver: 4x per week with KE071/KE072 flying on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

Toronto: 3x per week with KE073/KE074 flying on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.

This is a promising sign from the South Korean carrier, and the aviation industry is collectively looking forward to a similar return to normal for all international operators.
