Korean Air just recently announced its decision to fly to Houston. However, much before the airline could launch service on the route, it has decided to expand the frequency of four weekly flights to daily. In an earlier statement, the airline said it would commence flights between Incheon and Houston beginning May 2. These flights were to operate four times a week on every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.
However, it now has decided to increase the frequency of yet-to-begin flights to daily surprising all in the aviation industry. Starting May 2, 2014, the flights from Incheon International Airport (ICN) to George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) will fly all days of the week. The airline believes that the Texas City is capable of handling the passenger traffic and the pressures hence prompting it to alter its initial decision.
Houston has expressed joy at the airline’s firmness to bring seamless connections into the city. Annise Parker, Mayor of Houston City said that this expansion is a apparent suggestion the city is a viable route as various travelers share their business interests here. She added that these connections will be appreciated by the travelers on both side of the Atlantic.
It commenced operations in 1962 and has since been offering smooth connections from the city to different parts of the world. The Seoul based airline is keen to expand its network across the globe. At present, it flies to 116 domestic and international destinations including Atlanta, Bangkok, Beijing, London, Paris, and Washington. It operates out of its hubs in Seoul Gimpo International Airport, and Seoul Incheon International Airport.
