Why not just go KBP-SVO-NRT?

Countless flights from Moscow to Tokyo.

It's cheaper (in most cases) via ICN. My friend from Kobe was flying on leg KIX-ICN-SVO-KBP.
KIX-ICN - OZ, ICN-SVO-KBP - SU.

I think there's an urgent need for direct flights to several African destinations to boost trade and tourism.

Probably this is not Korean Air's first African destination.

KE already flew to Cairo.

Only viable destinations in Africa for Korean Air is Johannesburg. There arent too many Korean tourists to justify flying to Morocco or Tunisia or Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt.

Asiana cant even being expanding in to Africa until it finishes doing so in North America.

Korean have mentioned a few times that they were planning to fly to Johannesburg. I thought that maybe they'll extend the Nairobi flights to JNB at first? Are they codesharing with Kenya Airways between NBO and JNB, I've tried to see if you can make a booking with KE between JNB and ICN on their website, but they don't have JNB as destination, and the flights connect to some of the JNB flights at NBO.

Well one problem with OZ expanding is the lack of capacity right now. I, for one, really hope to see OZ expand to Canada. Being based in YVR as well as a OZ member, I would kike to see OZs entry into YVR. I don't think ICN is ACs most popular Asian route, and I can see OZ generating more people given their transit network, and I'm sure AC can redeploy their capacity to other Asian destinations, such as the HKG route (generally really full) or perhaps to new destinations.

Yea Asiana is getting huge delivery from Airbus including A380 but thats not until at least 2014.


It makes a lot of sense for Asiana to expand in to Canada, Air Canada is one of their Star Alliance partners.

S. Korea's int'l. air traffic hits record high in April
(Shanghai Daily/Xinhua, May 28)


Quote:
SEOUL, May 28 (Xinhua)-- South Korea's international air passenger traffic posted 22.6 percent growth last month to reach the largest-ever figure for the month of April, thanks mainly to increased holiday travel, the government said Monday.

The Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs said the number of international air passengers stood at 3.75 million last month, marking the highest number for the month of April. The previous record of 3.07 million was set in April last year.

The ministry said holidays in April, such as China's Labor Day holidays and Golden Week in Japan, boosted demand for air travel in and out of South Korea.

Passenger traffic on Japanese routes posted the biggest gain with an increase of 52.2 percent. The ministry added that traffic to Oceania and Southeast Asia rose 24.1 percent and 21.6 percent, respectively, with the number for China gaining 3.2 percent. Meanwhile, the volume of air cargo handled by South Korea's airports declined 3.1 percent to 284,000 tons over the cited period due to sluggish economic conditions in the European Union and uncertainties on foreign exchange rates and global oil prices, according to the ministry.

Incident: Jin B738 at Taipei on Jun 20th 2012, Runaway Excursion while vacating the runway
(The Aviation Herald/WCARN.com, June 21)

Quote:
A Jin Air Boeing 737-800, flight LJ-13 from Jeju (South Korea) to Taipei (Taiwan) with 95 passengers and 6 crew, had landed safely on Taipei's runway 05L in Typhoon conditions at about 21:13L (13:13Z) and was expected to turn off onto high speed exit N8, however, actually attempted to turn off onto high speed exit N7 but skidded and came to a stop with the nose gear on soft ground forcing runway and taxiway N7 to be closed.

The aircraft was towed back onto paved surface and to the apron about 2 hours later, the runway and taxiway re-opened a short time later after inspections. The passengers disembarked normally at the gate through an airbridge after being kept on board throughout the recovery.


The incident aircraft was able to perform the return flight LJ-14 the following day after about 15 hours on the ground (scheduled ground time 13 hours) and reached Jeju with a delay of 2 hours.

Korean Air First in Region to Offer Direct Flights to Nairobi

Quote:
Korean Air has become the first Northeast Asian carrier to offer direct flights to Nairobi, Kenya. The airline held a ceremony at Incheon International Airport on Thursday to mark the launch of the new service with Chi Chang-hoon, president of the Korean flagship, and Kenyan Ambassador to Korea Ngovi Kitau attending.

Korean Air will operate its 226-seat Airbus A330 passenger planes on the Incheon-Nairobi flights that will run three times a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday). The flights will depart from Incheon at 10:15 p.m. and arrive in Nairobi at 5:30 a.m. the following day (Kenya time). They will depart from the African country at 10:30 a.m. and arrive in Incheon at 4:50 a.m. the next day.

"With the direct flights to Nairobi, passengers traveling to Africa can save time," Chi said. "We hope that the flights will play a role in expanding exchanges between Korea and Africa."

Korean Air plans to expand its operations in Africa amid increasing investment by Korean companies in the continent.

Korean Air apologizes for calling Kenyans "primitive"
(WCARN.com/Associated Press, June 18)


Quote:
A notice on Korean Air's website announcing the start of non-stop flights from Korea to Kenya sparked a flurry of angry Tweets and Facebook postings Monday over the description of Kenyans as indigenous people full of "primitive energy."

Muthui Kariuki, who is handling public relations for Korean Air in Kenya, said that the notice had been removed from the website and that the word "primitive" was a result of a mistake in translation from Korean to English.


Kariuki said the airline, which is supposed to launch the thrice-weekly flights this Thursday, will post an apology.


Kenyans expressed their anger on social media.


"An insult to a nation. Kenya doesn't have primitive people," posted a Twitter user who identified himself as George Njoro.


Others however felt that the mistake in the notice was an intentional marketing gimmick.


"Now everybody knows Korea Air is coming to Kenya. Nice marketing strategy," tweeted another person using the Twitter handle of Komboste.


Kenya is a regional hub where passengers can connect to flights to other countries in the region and in Africa.


A number of international airlines operate from Kenya including Air India, British Airways, Emirates, KLM, Qatar Airways, Saudi Arabian Airlines, South Africa Airways, Swiss International Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic.

Korean Air to raise domestic fares
(Chosun Ilbo, June 28)

Quote:
Korean Air will raise the airfares for all of its domestic flights from July 18, the first time it has done so in eight years. Aisana Airlines and low-cost carriers are expected to follow suit.

The nation's largest carrier will increase its economy-class airfares by 6 percent on weekdays, 12 percent on weekends and 15 percent during busy seasons.

Surcharges and upgrades will also become dearer. Currently, business-class passengers pay an extra W40,000 (US$1=W1,158) for the privilege, but this will grow to W60,000, resulting in an average increase of 26 percent for business-class tickets.

Under the revised pricing policy, an economy-class ticket for a one-way flight between Gimpo and Jeju will climb from W73,400 to W82,000 on weekdays, and from W92,900 to W107,000 on weekends and busy seasons. Business-class seats will cost an extra W28,600 on weekdays, taking the price to W142,000.

"We decided to raise our airfares in the second half of this year, but we are keeping the hike as low as possible to minimize the burden on household budgets in accordance with government polices," Korean Air said.

Asiana Airlines and low-cost airlines are also expected to make fliers fork out more.

"Large airlines have so far decided against increasing their domestic airfares despite their deficits to ward off the threat posed by low-cost airlines," an executive at a budget carrier said. "Korean Air's decision will provide momentum for us to increase our airfares and breathe easy again."

Korean Air said it has no "immediate plan to increase" its international airfares.

Korean Air reports quarterly loss due to weak cargo business, currency
(WCARN.com/Associated Press, July 19)

Quote:
Korean Air Line Co. reported a second quarter loss on Thursday as the global economic slowdown hurt its cargo business and a decline in the local currency made servicing its foreign debt more expensive.

South Korea's largest airline said its April-June net loss totaled 159 billion won (US$140 million) on revenue of 3.3 trillion won.The flag carrier said the performance of its cargo business reflected South Korea's sluggish exports.

Cargo shipments decreased by around 12 percent from the same period a year earlier due to a sharp fall in cargos bound for Europe and America. The fall in the South Korean won against the dollar increased Korean Air's interest payments on its foreign-currency debt, raising overall expenses even as fuel costs stabilized, it said.
