This is news to me. I had no idea that Korean Air was planning to serve Johannesburg. Where did you heard this? What source or articles?

Charter Flights Scheduled for Summer Season

By Kim Rahn
Staff Reporter

The summer vacation season is officially in gear and airlines have already started preparing large-scale charter flights to overseas tourist destinations.

From July to early September, Korean Air has announced that it will be operating charter flights to eight destinations, while Asiana Airlines plans to offer service to seven locations.

Flights from both of the nation's two flagship carriers are expected to enjoy especially high popularity this season, as a growing number of travelers prefer Korean carriers following the recent crash of Cambodia's PMT Air. Safety measures have been upgraded and are continually being monitored in order to ensure customer satisfaction.

Starting from this month, Korean Air will offer three weekly direct flights to Calgary, Canada, right through to Sept. 2. Calgary, the gateway to the Canadian Rockies, is a well-loved attraction for Koreans. This route is far more convenient for vacationers and students alike, as previously they had to transfer in Vancouver or Toronto.

The carrier will also charter flights to Cairns, Australia, from July 27 to Aug. 24. An A330 flight is scheduled to provide this service on Mondays and Fridays.

A total of five charter flights will bring tourists from Incheon to Irkutsk in Russia from Aug. 3 through 17. The Korean Air flights will depart Tuesday and Friday at 8:40 p.m.

Korean Air will also offer 12 charters to Huhhot, the capital of Neimenggu (Inner Mongolia) autonomous region in China, from July 15 to Aug. 22; 12 flights to Lankawi, Malaysia, from July 28 through Aug. 15; 15 flights to Pataya, Thailand; 10 flights to Kusiro, Japan; and 21 flights to Sapporo.

``We decided to operate charter flights on various routes for travelers who want relaxation in nature,'' a Korean Air official said.

Asiana has placed charter planes mainly to China and Japan.

It will operate four charter flights each for Miyazaki on July 6; Tokyo on July 14 and 16; Asahikawa on July 11 and 18; Nagoya on July 13 and 15; and Osaka on July 13 and 15.

A charter flight to Harbin of China departs Incheon on July 9, and between Jeju Island and Sendai on July 14 and 16.

``The number of overseas travelers jumps for summer vacation, so we arranged charter planes for resort destinations first. We also put charters on our key routes _ China and Japan,'' an Asiana Airlines official said.

Bodies of S. Korean victims of Cambodian jet crash return home

The bodies of 13 South Korean tourists killed in a Cambodian plane crash arrived here on Saturday according to Yonhap News Agency.

The bodies arrived with accompanying relatives of the victims at the Incheon International Airport at around 7:30 in the Morning.

According to a Cambodian official, the charter plane left the Angkor temple town of Siem Reap around 10:00 a.m. local time and vanished off radar screens 37 minutes later.

The crashed plane was headed for the southern seaside resort town of Sihanoukville, ABC News reported.

Inclement weather hampered the rescue effort, taking search teams two days to find the wreckage of the plane.

CONTINENTAL MICRONESIA PLANS SUMMER SCHEDULED
CHARTER SERVICES TO SEOUL




HAGÅTÑA, GU, May 18, 2007 – Continental Micronesia announced today that it will operate summer scheduled charter services between Guam and Seoul, South Korea. The airline added the charters in response to strong demand for travel to Guam from Seoul, and in order to further stimulate Guam’s economy. “We’re pleased to re-enter the Korean market. Continental has the ability to increase capacity when markets demonstrate additional demand. We’ll continue to work with our industry partners and with the Guam Visitors Bureau to promote Guam as an attractive destination,” said Continental Micronesia President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Erwin.

Continentals’ Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 155 seats will service the nonstop flight between Guam International Airport and Incheon International Airport (ICN) in Seoul. The flight will operate four times a week, except Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for July and except Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays for August / September starting July 1 through September 3. The schedule is subject to approval from South Korea’s government. Flying time from Guam will be approximately 4.5 hours.

Continental Micronesia is the hometown airline here in Guam, and this move is just another symbol of our commitment to the Guam community in bringing more travelers to this region,” said Erwin.

Korean Air Inaugurates Service To Calgary, Canada

Korean Air, South Korea's flagship carrier, will introduce thrice-weekly chartered flight service to Calgary, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Canada for the two months from July 1 to September 2, 2007. The new service is expected to widen the road between North America and Asia which had long suffered from seat shortage in summer due to high air travel demand for leisure and English language courses.

The three outbound flights will depart Seoul/Incheon on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 6:20pm and arrive in Calgary at 2:05pm the same day. The return flight will leave Calgary on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 4:05 pm and arrive in Seoul/Incheon at 6:30pm the following day. Korean Air will use 301-seat Boeing 777-200 aircraft to serve this route.

Calgary, the gateway to the Rocky Mountains , is characterized by the pioneer spirit that helped to settle the West. It is the traffic hub situated between the magnificent Canadian Rockies on the west and the prairie on the east. And it is also the country's fourth largest metropolitan city with the world's second biggest developed oil industry.

Five of the 13 Unesco heritages of Canada are located in Calgary, namely Banff and Jasper, Waterton Lakes National park, Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, Dinosaur Provincial Park and Wood Buffalo National Park. Other scenic spots in the city include the Rocky Mountains, which is the symbol of Calgary; the 191 meter tall Calgary Towers, from which visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of the downtown; The Canada Olympic Park where visitors can practice winter sports even during the summer season; the historical village in Heritage Park that features the twentieth century lifestyles. Calgary is also famous for its Lanchmance restaurant, shooting locations of the Academy Awards winning film Brokeback Mountains and Stampede Festivals which take place in Stampede Park.

Korean Air's new charter service to Calgary marks the airline's third direct flight operation to Canada following Vancouver , Toronto and is expected to boost the flow of visitors between the two countries as well as leisure travelers to Canada during this summer season. The new direct operation to Calgary will allow more convenient access to the Rocky Mountains for travelers who now have to transit through Vancouver, Toronto.

The UNESCO attractions are near Calgary. Banff is an hour and a half from the city and Jasper is a couple more hours beyond. I thought it was a bit odd thinking did I miss all those when I was there last year?

Incheon has Asian Spirit Airlines operating ICN-KLO now. I don't know if it's seasonal or schedule flight but flight 6K097 - Departs 8:25 and flight 6K096 Arrives 21:10. (Operating 4 or 5 times a week I think)

Anyways, new flights are always welcome!!

Seoul nixes added Asian Spirit flights from RP

THE South Korean Government has rejected the request of local airline Asian Spirits to increase its flights because of a recent agreement it forged with the Philippine Government.

Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) executive director Carmelo Arcilla received a letter from Asian Spirit informing him of the refusal of South Korea to grant the local airline additional flights from Manila to Seoul.

"Because of this Asian Spirit has to stop its flights (to Seoul)," Arcilla said during his presentation at the open skies policy forum sponsored by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI)

"The reason given was that they (Korea's Ministry of Construction and Transportation) have just signed a CMOU (confidential memorandum of understanding or air services agreement) for increased capacity and there are still unused seats," Arcilla added.

Arcilla said South Korea asked the Philippine Government "to utilize the unutilized entitlements."

He said South Korea told Asian Spirit management to choose on either the Kalibo-Inchon or the Davao-Inchon routes. (MSN/Sunnex)

Here's an article regarding what type of aircraft Korean Air plans to use for South America and Africa routes.


Korean Air to Fly Boeing 787



Korean Air said it's planning a 2009 launch for the new B787 jet, which U.S.-based Boeing debuted on Sunday at its Everett Factory outside Seattle. Korean Air on Monday said it will phase in 10 B787 jets with 210 to 330 seats from 2009, putting them on long-haul flights to South America and Africa as part of a plan to develop more long-distance routes.

Boeing has spent US$10 billion developing the new jet, which it claims flies 20 percent more fuel efficiently thanks to light-weight cutting-edge building materials.

Korean Air said, "The B787 is eco-friendly since it produces less pollution and noise during take-off and landing. The plane also enhances passenger convenience with a more comfortable interior design."

Korean Air also plans to acquire five Airbus A380 jets and 10 Boeing B777-300ER for routes to North America and Europe. It will phase out some of its older aircraft with 40 state-of-the-art jets between 2009 and 2015.

Asiana to Increase Flights to Frankfurt

South Korea's second-largest flag carrier Asiana Airlines Inc. said Wednesday it will increase its flights to Frankfurt, Germany, starting in mid-July to satisfy growing demand during the summer holiday season.

The carrier plans to offer seven weekly flights, up from the current four, on the route between Incheon, 40 kilometers west of Seoul, and Frankfurt, Asiana Airlines said in a statement.

Asiana will replace the B747-400Combi, a 280-seat aircraft that has been flying the route, with the B777-200ER, a 303-seat aircraft with audio- and video-on-demand services in all classes, beginning in mid-August to ease a shortage of seats, the company said.

I think majority of new airport or any new structures built today are Glass and Steel!

Since Kansai airport was built first in Sept 1994, (to quote your statement) "the airport is just like hk...glass and steel....nice though"

Please don't takes this the wrong way, just having fun!

Cargo Giant’s China Deal Advances

By Gareth Powell, July 12, 2007



Korean Airlines, the largest international air cargo carrier, has won preliminary approval for a $65-million venture in China. The airline will spend $16.25 million on a 25% stake in Galaxy International. Sinotrans Air Transportation Development will invest US$33.15 million and hold 51%.

In this Korean Air follows Singapore Airlines, Lufthansa and other airlines in forming China cargo ventures. Chinese exports were 28.7% higher in May than a year earlier but there are now signs that the air cargo market is becoming a little overcrowded and highly competitive.

Shipping Giant UPS increases flights to
Incheon International Airport




When it comes to world shipping, names do not get as big as the US shipping giant United Parcel Service, and UPS has just decided to add more flights to Incheon International Airport.

Incheon International Airport Corporation president & CEO Mr. Jaehee Lee met with UPS Korea president Mr. Jung Myoung-su at a joint press conference held in Incheon Hyatt Regency last July 25th, and announced direct services by UPS aircraft connecting Incheon International Airport to Cologne-Bonn airport five times per week, beginning July 24th.

Introduction of additional UPS flights represents the largest increase in the number flights by a foreign carrier by far, with the number of UPS flights out of Incheon International Airport jumping from the current 26 to 31 per week, not to mention adding 36000 metric tons to Incheon International Airport s total cargo traffic.

Also, shipping of UPS packages from Korea to Europe that had been routed through Clark Airport in the Philippines will be expedited as a result of creation of a direct UPS flights from Korea to Germany, not to mention bringing in demands for additional shipping.

Mr. Jaehee Lee, president & CEO of IIAC, stated confidently that Incheon International Airport, already possessing the largest logistics network in Northeast Asia (connecting Korea, Japan, and China), is also seeing its cargo traffic with Europe increase at a brisk pace of 15% per year, currently standing at 560,000 tons per annum. As a result of the new deal with UPS, Mr. Lee stated that the process of transformation of Incheon International Airport into the logistics hub for Northeast Asia could only be accelerated further.

The news is no surprise for Incheon International Airport, already the secondlargest airport in the world in terms of amount of international cargo handled, not to mention other large deals a series of foreign cargo companies. IIAC agreed with Atlas Air to create new facilities in the new cargo terminal as part of the airport s efforts at becoming the air hub for Asia and a 40-million dollar agreement with DHL to build a massive cargo terminal.
