UK carrier British Airways (BA) will launch a new route to Seoul on December 2, 2012. The announcement follows the airline’s promise to increase long-haul flights to Asia after its owner IAG’s purchase of bmi.
A Boeing 777 with First class, Club World, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller cabins will serve the six flights a week to the South Korean city.
BA’s Commercial Director Drew Crawley commented: “We have seen significant growth in customers wanting to travel to Seoul for both business and pleasure. We want to ensure that we do our bit in bringing as much business and tourism to the UK as we can.”
Tickets go on sale today, with prices starting at £798 ($1291) return for passengers flying to and from London Heathrow.
