New service begins in May


(Kuala Lumpur=Koreanpress) KP News Team = Beginning May, 2014, Korean Air, the largest Asian airline in America, is launching its nonstop service between Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) and Incheon International Airport in Seoul.

The inaugural flight will take place on May 2, with service aboard a B777-200 aircraft.  Nonstop flights connecting the two destinations will depart from the Terminal D facility at Bush Intercontinental Airport (at 10:40 am) every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

“We’re very bullish on the Americas,” informed John Jackson, the airline’s Vice President of Marketing for North and South America.  “Houston is the fifth largest metro area in the U.S. with a very strong travel market to Asia.  We’ve decided to earn our fair share of this market with a highly competitive product and service that’s hard to beat.”

Houston’s Mayor, Annise Parker agreed with Jackson’s assessment and said that the route represents an exceptional business opportunity for the Korean Air team."Houston's dynamic economy and diverse population continue to strengthen its position on the world stage," the Mayor commented. "This new nonstop flight to Seoul is an excellent example of Houston's enhanced status as a gateway city and key player in the global marketplace.”

“We see continued opportunities in the Americas through our own efforts and through our membership in the SkyTeam alliance. We’ll add more capacity in a variety of other U.S. markets during the upcoming spring and summer seasons,” Jackson added.

“The economic and cultural ties that exist between the city of Houston and Korea continue to grow stronger in the 21st century.” declared the Houston Aviation Director, Mario Diaz.  “Korean Air recognizes the potential that lies within this growing relationship and the Houston Airport System looks forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”

Houston will now represent Korean Air’s 14th gateway in the Americas.  Others include Atlanta,Chicago, Dallas, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Seattle, Toronto, Vancouver and Washington, D. C.
