Korean Air New Service To Prague And Helsinki...

Sun Oct 26, 2003 10:18 pm

Korean Air might start Incheon-Helsinki Cargo service 1x Weekly, if early, starting next month, and Incheon-Prague Passenger next year, 3x weekly. They will also increase frequency between KUL-ICN and ULN-ICN. Services to Prague is most likely to be with an A330-200 or 300E.

PS: I heard Korean Air is also interested in Covington. Any more information on that ?

I was already hoping for a non-European passenger airline to HEL... guess I'll have to wait some more.

Prague!? The czech republik!? What do they think they can win by flying there. Absolute nonsense, I'd think. They would be far better of getting their czech republik partners from Alitalia and Air France trough code sharing on the PRG-CDG and PRG-FCO routes.

Hoons90,

Have you heard any new information of the ICN-HEL cargo flight? And which a/c they would most likely operate on that flight? MD11F or B747F?

Regards,
MD

I'm glad PRG is getting more long-hauls from international carriers. Go, PRG go!!
Finally made it to an airline mecca!

Manni,
hub to hub flights between partners can make alot of sense even if there is not alot of local traffic. If KE makes PRGICN work, it will prove the value of Skyteam to both OK and KE.

Hoons90,
if Covington is CVG, yes there is talk about KE flying to DL's hub there and I could easily see it happening w/ a 777 for the same reason as PRGICN.

ICN-PRG would be a great SkyTeam link.

The two carriers don't have a non-stop link between their operations.

There must be a market for Eastern Europe to Asia and back.
