A new joint venture is unfolding between Korean Air and Delta Airlines is unfolding, and Boston has a major role in it. A new nonstop flight between Boston and Seoul will be launched on April 12, 2019 in cooperation with joint venture partner, Delta Air Lines.
The new Boston flight, along with new Minneapolis/St. Paul – Seoul service that Delta is launching in 2019, are the first additions to the joint venture’s Seoul-Incheon network since the two carriers launched their partnership in May.
The Boston-Seoul service will be operated on Korean Air’s new 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft featuring six First Class sleeper suites, 18 Prestige business class sleeper suites, and 245 seats in economy class.
Customers can access 290 destinations on Delta in the Americas and 80 destinations in Asia on Korean Air. This past January, Korean and Delta co-located in the industry-leading Incheon Terminal 2, making connections between Asia and America some of the industry’s quickest.
