Korean Airways at Gatwick

Gatwick Airport has welcomed Korean Airlines to the South London airport in a joint reception ahead of the carrier's 29 April introduction of a three times per week Seoul service.

Highlighted was the airline's China connections at Seoul.  There are 21 cities currently linked.  UK Sales Manager Peter Barron emphasised that the airline's services to Australasia are proving to be extremely popular.  ”It’s a very logical route via Seoul, with good connections for business and leisure passengers,” he said. “Gatwick opens up a whole new market for us.”

The airline flies to Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne plus the Pacific Islands of Guam and Nandi.  With a morning (10:30) departure the new service perfectly complements the carrier's long-established daily Heathrow operation (20:05) and with an 05:35 arrival provides for excellent network connections.  In the other direction travel from Australia and New Zealand takes place within a single day.  Leave Sydney at 07:55 and you will be in Gatwick at 22:55 (all times local).

A Boeing 777 will offer eight First Class, 28 Business and 225 in Economy.  Korean has already taken delivery of its initial Airbus A380 and with it the world’s first airborne Duty Free showroom.  On order is the “all new” Boeing 747-8i. www.korean.com
