Korean Air has resumed a three times weekly service between Vienna and Seoul. The route is operated on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays with the A330-200 and the 787-9.

“The Asian market is slowly coming back after the pandemic-related disruption, and I am pleased that Korean Air is resuming its regular Seoul-Vienna service,” said Julian Jäger, Joint CEO and COO, Vienna Airport. “We have a long-standing partnership with Korean Air in the passenger and freight sectors. The airline has had a presence at Vienna Airport since the 1990s and has been coming to Vienna regularly since 2007. Since then, Korean Air has developed very well at the location and established itself as an important airline partner for business and tourism in both countries.”

Korean Air and Vienna Airport have a long history together: from June 1990 to August 1992, the airline operated the Vienna-Seoul route once a week and since 2004 Korean Air has been operating regular cargo flights to Vienna. Since 28 March 2007, the airline has been flying to Vienna continuously, with the exception of the interruption in 2020 and 2021 caused by the pandemic.
