South Korea’s national carrier Korean Air has announced it will be increasing flights services to various international destinations. Moreover, the airline will also be deploying fuel-efficient aircrafts to offer enhanced flying experience to its customers.
Media reports said that Korean Air is planning to gradually expand its network during the coming months. The airline has indicated that it will be launching flights to important cities in the United States and Europe during the peak season, which started in March and concludes in October, to cope up with the increased travel demand.
The reports further stated that Korean Air is also planning to include fuel-efficient Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircrafts in its fleet, and would be launching some of these aircrafts in June this year on its profitable routes. This is being done to cut costs significantly and attracting customers in a big way.
Korean Air recently released a statement to the media saying that its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft has been received in February this year. The airline will also be taking the delivery of four additional Dreamliners later in 2017. Apart from these, five more Dreamliners would be delivered to the airline in 2019.
A spokesman of Korean Air said that the company has set its target of achieving $11 billion in sales revenue in 2017. This is expected to be achieved after the airline succeeds in expanding its flights network on major international routes and implementing cost-cutting measures across the company effectively.
Meanwhile, in a major development Korean Air and Delta Air Lines have recently signed an agreement strengthening their partnership further. Through this association both the airlines want to offer enhanced travel experience to their respective customers. The trans-Pacific joint venture agreement will also enable the two airlines to share revenues and costs on flights as well as coordinate schedules for efficient, hassle-free connections.
