The Seoul connection will initially operate three times a week, with the airline using a 291-seat Boeing 777-300ER for the flights to Prague.
Scheduled service between Prague and South Korea is returning after a three-year hiatus. Korean Air will resume flights between Prague and Seoul on March 27. It was suspended in March 2020 with the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
Prague Airport announced the launch of the route in a press release. Initially, the route will be operated three times a week, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with the possibility of increasing the frequency to four weekly flights during the summer season based on demand and tendencies.
Passengers will fly on a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft with 291 seats (64 in business, 227 in economy). The route will significantly boost the currently lacking capacity to South Korea. Thanks to connecting flights from Seoul to other destinations in Asia that are traditionally strong in demand, such as Thailand, Japan and Vietnam, as well as Indonesia and Australia, capacities will also increase.
