Starting this summer, Korean Air will begin service to its new European destination: Budapest, Hungary.
The seasonal service will run through the summer between May 23 to October 17 on a thrice-weekly service between Seoul-Incheon and Budapest using Airbus A330-200 aircraft.
Korean Air's new service will be the second airline to offer flights on the route. LOT Polish Airlines launched its own thrice-weekly flights in late September.
“It is great to see that there is yet another long-haul flight being launched from Budapest to Seoul in May. The market demand to and from Korea is considerable enough to support these three new weekly flights and the BUD team are fully committed to supporting Korean Air in what is sure to become yet another successful new route.” -Kam Jandu, CCO, Budapest Airport via Airline Network News and Analysis.
In recent years, the Hungarian capital has seen an increase in flights to Asia with a growing network that includes destinations such as Beijing, Chongqing, Sanya, Seoul, and Shanghai.
