These include an Incheon to New York service, and a Bangkok route, both of which will start in August. Meanwhile, from 26th September Korean Air will start a thrice weekly service between Paris and Incheon, offering European residents even more travel options.
There are already numerous flights between these cities, with Korean Air utsing its place as a member of the SkyTeam alliance to build up a considerable network of services.

And with another five Airbus A380's due for delivery before the end of 2011, passengers with this company can expect the number of routes to expand further still.
