British Airways to Begin New South Korea Route
British Airways will begin to fly a new route to Seoul, South Korea starting on December 2, 2012. The service will operate using a Boeing 777, equipped with first class, club class, World Traveller Plus, and World Traveller cabins.
Flights will depart from London Heathrow at 1:00 p.m. and arrive in Seoul at 8:55 a.m., and depart from Seoul at 10:45 a.m. and arrive in London at 2:00 p.m. Flights from London to Seoul are scheduled to operate every day of the week except Wednesdays, and flights from Seoul to London will operate every day except Thursdays.
The new route is a direct result of more people traveling to Seoul for both business and pleasure. The city, which is the capital of Korea, was ranked eighth in the Global Cities Index this year.
