Korean Air Plans to Add North America Capacity as A380s Arrive

Korean Air Lines Co., the country’s biggest carrier, plans to increase flights to the U.S. and Canada this year as it adds two more Airbus SAS A380 superjumbos to its fleet.

The carrier will add nine planes this year to its fleet, enabling more flights to Seattle, Las Vegas, Vancouver and Chicago, Woo Kee Hong, senior vice president of strategy and planning at Korean Air, said in an interview in Seoul on March 22. The company will increase services to Southeast Asia, China and Japan while not adding routes to Europe, Woo said.
