Korean Air launching Budapest route

Wednesday, 30 Aug, 2022 0

Korean Air is the latest new airline to launch flights to Budapest.

Beginning on 3 October, Korean Air will operate a weekly service to Budapest from its Seoul Incheon hub.

It increases to twice-weekly by end-October until the end of the winter 2022 season.

The airline is set to increase the frequency to three times weekly flights at a later date

The route will be operated by a Boeing Dreamliner.

LOT Polish Airlines currently flies the route twice-weekly.

The arrival of Korean Air builds on the growing demand for travel to and from Northeast Asia.

Balázs Bogáts, Head of Airline Development, Budapest Airport, said: “It is fantastic to see that there is yet another long-haul route being launched from Budapest to Seoul. The market demand to and from South Korea is considerable enough to support an increase.”

Many Korean companies are located in Hungary as a result of the Hungarian Government’s investment policy in the car manufacturing industry.

“We had considered Budapest as an attractive destination even before the pandemic. Korean Air’s inaugural flight to Budapest will allow our customers to experience and appreciate the city’s beautiful nature and diverse attractions.” Park Jeong Soo, Managing Vice President, Korean Air said.
