Flybe partnership deal with Korean

The status of Flybe as a key regional link to global services was boosted last week when Korean Air announced an interline agreement with the airline which will enable bookings in Korean’s global distribution system for the long-haul carrier’s flights from the UK.

Travel agents will be able to ticket their clients travelling from around the UK and bound for South Korea or any onward destination on the Korean Air network via the Korean Air gateways of Heathrow, Paris Charles de Gaulle or Amsterdam Schiphol.

Beyond the Korean Airways hub at Seoul Incheon Airport, key destinations on the airline’s network include up to 12 cities in Japan; 25 in China; Sydney and Brisbane in Australia; Auckland, New Zealand and Nadi, Fiji.

Korean Air noted its European flights have an early evening departure, facilitating connections with Flybe UK-origin flights, with return flights from Seoul arriving early afternoon, giving similar ease of onward transit. Luggage can be tagged through to final destination.

Korean Air regional manager UK & Ireland Jong Rae Kim, said: “The new interline agreement with Flybe is great news for regional passengers, who will benefit from improved choice of connecting flights and pricing.

“The deal opens up many departure points, although we anticipate Edinburgh and Aberdeen will be the most popular.”
