Korean Air is resuming its flights between Las Vegas and Seoul on July 10. The airline had suspended operations in March 2020 owing to COVID-19.
Flights will operate on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, departing from Las Vegas at 12:10 p.m. and arriving in Incheon at 5:40 p.m. the following day. Return flights will depart Incheon at 2:10 p.m. and arrive in Las Vegas at 10:10 a.m. The airline will deploy a 218-seat Airbus A330-200 for the route.
With the resumption of its Las Vegas route, Korean Air has resumed service to all its 13 North American gateways, including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington D.C., Honolulu, Boston, Toronto and Vancouver.
“Korean Air is very pleased to reinstate our flights from Las Vegas and provide a convenient gateway to Asia for travelers in the western U.S. We launched our Las Vegas service more than 15 years ago, and we’re the only Asian airline serving this dynamic market. Throughout the years, Las Vegas has been a great partner of Korean Air, and we look forward to continuing our shared successes,” said Jin Ho Lee, SVP and director of Korean Air’s regional headquarters, Americas.
Kate Wik, chief marketing officer for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, said: “Korean Air has been an important partner over the years, and its service from Seoul has been instrumental in growing our visitation numbers from South Korea. We look forward to this route returning and once again providing visitors from South Korea and Southeastern Asia with world-class experiences that can only be found in Vegas.”
