South Korea’s flag carrier is resuming regular services to a quartet of destinations in Europe this spring, ending a three-year hiatus on all four routes. Starting from March 27, the airline will once again fly nonstop to Prague three times a week. Each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, a two-class Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will depart from Incheon at 12:45 p.m. and arrive in the Czech capital at 4:55 p.m. after 11 hours and 10 minutes in the air. The returning flights will leave Prague’s Václav Havel Airport at 6:50 p.m. and touch down in Incheon at 11:50 a.m. the next day.

Boeing 777s will also be deployed on flights between Incheon and Zürich, which are due to restart on March 28 with thrice-weekly departures scheduled on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The westbound service will take off at 12:20 p.m. and arrive in Zürich at 5:30 p.m. the same afternoon — its estimated journey time is 12 hours and 10 minutes. The return flight will leave at 7:30 p.m. and arrive back in Incheon the following day at 1:35 p.m.; passengers traveling east will spend an hour less in the cabin.

From April 24, services to Istanbul will resume on a thrice-weekly basis using Airbus A330-200s. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, travelers will be flown out of Incheon at 1:40 p.m. to land at Turkey’s largest city at 7:40 p.m. after exactly 12 hours; the returning flight will then leave Istanbul at 9:20 p.m. and arrive at Incheon at 1:25 p.m. the next day.

The Incheon–Madrid route will relaunch one day later with departures scheduled three times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. Operated with a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, flight KE913 will leave Incheon at 11:35 a.m. and touch down at Barajas Airport at 6 p.m., while the return service from the Spanish capital will depart at 8 p.m. and arrive in Incheon the following afternoon at 3:55 p.m. Passengers can expect the journey to last up to 13 and a half hours depending on the direction.

As travel demand increases, Korean Air will continue to build back frequencies for its international flights and reactivate suspended routes.
