BRITISH Airways kicked off its latest longhaul route to South Korea, flying to Seoul’s Incheon International Airport today.
“With the arrival of flight BA17 this morning and our proud return to South Korea, we celebrate a milestone in our commitment to increasing our presence in Asia,” said Jamie Cassidy, British Airways area general manager, Middle East and Asia Pacific. “The Republic of Korea is increasingly both a cultural and economic giant and a market with huge potential.”
BA17 and BA18 will operate six times a week non-stop between London Heathrow and Seoul Incheon. This marks the airline’s return to South Korea after 14 years.
