Finnair launches flights from Helsinki to Seoul

Finnair today launches a new flight service from Helsinki direct to Seoul. The Seoul route compliments Finnair's constantly growing Asian network and supports Helsinki's status as an important transfer point between Asia and Europe. Seoul is Finnair's eleventh Asian destination.

The inaugural Finnair flight will land at Incheon Airport on 3 June 2008 and the first flight from Seoul to Helsinki will take off on the same day. The flights are operated five times a week with Finnair's new Airbus A340-300 long-haul aircraft.

Since 2001, Finnair’s Asian traffic has grown six-fold. The expansion of the Asian network has been possible thanks to Finnair's long-haul fleet renewal and increased number of aircraft. Finnair took delivery of two new A340-300 aircraft in 2007 and two more will arrive in May and July this year.

Demand for air travel between Europe and South Korea is growing every year. Korea offers a great deal of potential for leisure travel from Europe to Asia and Korea itself is enjoying increasing popularity as a tourist destination among Europeans. A great deal of business travel to and from European and South Korean companies is also expected on the route.

The flight time from Helsinki to Seoul is 8 hours and 55 minutes. From Seoul to Helsinki it is 9 hours and 50 minutes. The timetable enables passengers from Seoul to depart in the morning and with a comfortable transfer in Helsinki, and arrive in Europe by the early evening.

Finnair also has Korean-speaking cabin crew and serves Korean meals on board its flights from Seoul to Helsinki, both in Business and Economy Class.

Timetable

Helsinki - Seoul


* Departure from Helsinki 17:30
* Arrival in Seoul 08:25 the following day

Seoul - Helsinki

* Departure from Seoul 10:15
* Arrival in Helsinki 14:05

Operating days (summer)

* Helsinki - Seoul: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday
* Seoul - Helsinki: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

Polar Air Cargo opens its Asian Hub Terminal

Polar Air Cargo is a subsidiary of its giant parent company Atlas Air World Wide Holdings(AAWH), based in Atlanta, Georgia. Ranking personnel from the logistics firm were on hand at IIAC last April 28th for the opening of the Atlas Air Cargo Terminal(AACT).

The Atlas Air Cargo Terminal is the result of joint investment and construction undertaken by Atlas Air and air logistics/aviation services firm Sharpe Corporation. The terminal will occupy 16,000 square meters of space and will be the only logistics terminal in Incheon International Airport built and operated by a single company.

The facility will be used by Polar Air Cargo as a vital hub and link between its routes connecting destinations in the Americas to Asia, and will become the company's center of logistics operations for Asia in general, including China and India, where demand for air transportation is increasing dramatically. The AACT is adjacent to US logistics firm DHL's Incheon Hub, also being built in the same area, and slated for completion in December. The proximity of the two facilities will likely lead to friendly, synergistic competition, and will make these two Incheon hubs take on greater importance for the two companies.

Mr. Jaehee Lee, President & CEO of IIAC, stated that "the fact that a world-class air logistics business group such as AAWH chose Incheon International Airport as the hub of its operations in Asia indicates clear recognition of Incheon International Airport's strategic location as well as its excellent, world-class infrastructure." He said such recognition reflects efforts, now coming to fruition, by Incheon International Airport to become 'A true World-Class logistics hub'.

※AAWH (Atlas Air World Wide Holdings): One of the world's leading companies in exclusive cargo transport and a holdings company that owns Atlas Air and Polar Air Cargo.

※AACT(Atlas Air Cargo Terminal): A joint venture firm organized for the construction of its exclusive cargo terminal in Incheon International Airport, consisting of AAWH and air logistics/aviation services firm Sharpe Corporation.

Lufthansa starts service for Munich-Incheon-Shenyang

Lufthansa's service is now going beyond its operations between Korea and Germany, reaching to China, with the carrier starting operations connecting the three nations.

The German airline began operating the three weekly Munich-Incheon-Shenyang flights Monday. The operation doubled the number of services between Incheon and Munich to six per week, along with the three flights on the Busan-Incheon-Munich route which was launched March last year.

It also operates daily flights between Incheon and Frankfurt.

Although many Korean and Chinese airlines connect Korea and China, Lufthansa is the first European carrier to do so.

The Incheon-Shenyang route will be a touchstone for the airline's service between Korea and China, said Harald Hahn, general manager of Lufthansa's Korea branch, at a media briefing in Seoul Thursday.

Shenyang, China's fifth largest city in terms of population, attracts many Korean travelers, businesspeople and students. The flight from Munich arrives in Incheon at 5:35 a.m. and departs for Shenyang about an hour later, allowing passengers a full day after arrival in the Chinese city.

Munich International Airport is Lufthansa's second hub airport following Frankfurt. The carrier provides connections to 110 other cities from Munich.

A 221-seat A340-300 aircraft will be used for the new operation.

The carrier offers an online promotion, with airfare between Incheon and Munich at 750,000 won ($728) and that between Incheon and Shenyang at 200,000 won.

For Korean passengers, the German airline has Korean cabin crew and provides Korean-style in-flight meal and Korean in-flight entertainment programs. A Korean-language information service is available at Frankfurt and Munich airports.

Air Caledonia to offer flights to Seoul
13 June 2008
AFP

Air Caledonia will start flying between South Korea and New Caledonia from June 22 in a bid to bolster tourism in the French Pacific territory, the company announced Friday.

The carrier will offer two flights a week to connect with Air France services to Paris. Air Caledonia and Air France already share seven return flights a week between Noumea and the French capital.

Air Caledonia International chief Jean-Michel Masson said they hoped to tap into a market that brought 650,000 Koreans to Oceania in 2007, though the territory has struggled to attract tourists.

Masson forecast future tourist revenue of about 10 million euros (15.4 million US dollars) from the air link.

Authorities in New Caledonia, located around 2,000 kilometres (1,250 miles) from Australia, are keen to broaden the territory's economy, which is heavily dependent on nickel mining.

SKorea's Incheon expands runways and terminal

SEOUL (Thomson Financial) - A third runway and an enlarged passenger terminal came into service Friday at South Korea's main international airport of Incheon, which hopes to bolster its status as an Asian aviation hub.

The Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs said the completion of the second building phase would allow the processing of up to 44 million passengers per year and 4.5 million tons of cargo.

The airport west of Seoul, which opened commercially in March 2001, can currently handle 30 million people annually and 2.7 million tons of cargo.

The ministry said the 4,000-metre (13,200-foot) third runway is one of 20 in the world that can handle giant aircraft such as the Airbus 380.

The second-phase construction project that began in 2002 cost 4 trillion won ($3.88 billion).

Officials plan by 2020 to increase the size of the airport to four runways and two separate passenger terminals that can process 100 million passengers and 7 million tons of cargo per year.
