Korean Air expands passenger and cargo services into Budapest

Korean Air has announced it is expanding passenger and cargo services into the Seoul Incheon/Budapest market, the company said.

Beginning in May, Korean Air will operate three-times weekly passenger services, flown on an Airbus A330-200 configured with 218 seats.

It expects the new direct service to reinforce its European network and boost its position in the east European market. Budapest will be the airline´s second eastern European destination after Prague.

The sector also offers the airline opportunities in the freight market, as it previously flagged the adverse impact of US-China trade tensions and has been continuously seeking opportunities in growth markets.
