As per John Jackson, the Korean Air vice president of marketing, Korean Air is the largest trans-Pacific airline. He adds that Delta is growing fast in Boston and inclusion of Asia flight Korean Air will help them strengthen their position.
Jackson feels that Boston is a major gateway for high tech industries, and it remians untapped from Korea. The Boston-Seoul service will operate five days a week on Korean Air’s new 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
Boston is a growing New England hub that is attracting companies in industries like IT, bio-technology, healthcare, finance and pharmaceuticals.
The two airlines partnered in May 2018. The new Boston flight, along with the Minneapolis/St. Paul-Seoul and Seattle-Osaka services that Delta is launching, are the first additions to the joint venture’s trans-Pacific network.
The combined schedules of Delta and Korean Air, will allow the customers of both the airlines to experience unmatched travel options.
Jackson says: “Our joint venture is undeniably the strongest Transpacific partnership and provides both of our airlines with a solid competitive edge.”
