Korean Air revealed its expansion plan for the 2013. Under this the airline will be increasing its fleet size by nine aircrafts. And these additional planes will further be used to boost Korean Air's connectivity across North America. Some of the key destinations targeted by the airline will include Vancouver, Seattle, Chicago and Las Vegas.
Senior Vice President of Strategy and Planning for Korea Air, Woo Kee Hong said that the airline will not be focusing on Europe for the year 2013. As there is already stiff competition by several Gulf carriers, and hence they have decided to concentrate majorly on the North American Region.
He also said that they can foresee a lot of growth opportunities between Asia and the U.S. and is expecting the passenger traffic between these two regions to increase by nearly four percent this year. Korean Air will be adding two super jumbo Airbus A380 to operate its U.S. and Canada flights. He also informed that by August 2013 the airline will start offering more air tickets between Seoul and Atlanta as it will use Airbus A380 on this route.
