Korean Air offers daily non-stop service from New York, Washington and Los Angeles to the carrier’s hub at Seoul’s Incheon International Airport (ICN), where travelers can connect onward to 12 Korean cities, more than two dozen Chinese cities, and most major cities in the Asia Pacific region, including Bangkok, Beijing, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Manila, Singapore, Shanghai, Tokyo and Taipei.

At New York JFK, JetBlue offers easy connections between Korean Air-operated flights and cities along the U.S. East Coast including Buffalo/Niagara Falls, New York; Charlotte and  Raleigh, North Carolina; Pittsburgh; and multiple destinations in Florida.

From Los Angeles International Airport, JetBlue offers connecting service to Boston, New York JFK, and Fort Lauderdale. From Washington Dulles International Airport, the carrier connects to destinations on the U.S. West Coast and throughout the Northeast United States.

With the recently added service on its new Airbus A380 fleet from Seoul to New York, Korean Air was the first airline to offer flights between East Asia and New York on the double-deck, widebody jet. Korean Air also offers daily service between Los Angeles and Seoul aboard the superjumbo. With only 407 seats in each of its A380s, Korean Air offers the most spacious configuration of any airline for the aircraft.

The A380 superjumbo has 12 First Class Kosmo suites on the lower deck, whilst the upper deck is entirely devoted to Prestige Business Class. The all-Business Class deck features 94 Prestige Sleeper seats, which convert to fully flat beds.

Each of Korean Air’s A380s also features an onboard bar and lounge area where passengers can sample Korean Air’s selection of cocktails as well as a first-of-its-kind ‘Duty Free Showcase’, which features a wide variety of duty-free products and a dedicated cabin crew member to assist and advise passengers with all their shopping needs.

Korean Air, which has a fleet of 144 aircraft, operates almost 400 flights per day to 119 cities in 40 countries.

It is a founding member of the SkyTeam alliance, which together with its 15 members, offers its 487 million annual passengers a worldwide system of more than 14,500 daily flights covering 926 destinations in 173 countries.
