SEOUL, Korea (April 15, 2016) – Commencing April 21st, Korean Air will resume services between South Korea’s Incheon and Russia’s second largest city, St. Petersburg. The airline will operate three flights a week, utilizing Airbus A330 aircraft equipped with AVOD in all seats and accommodating up to 218 passengers.

A gateway to northern Europe, St. Petersburg is a major European cultural center with a rich heritage and centuries old traditions. The city is home to more than two hundred museums; the best known being the famous Hermitage Museum. Korean Air is well known for its support of arts and culture and has sponsored the audio guide service at the Hermitage Museum since 2009.

On May 13th, Korean Air will also resume seasonal flights between Incheon and Irkutsk, a city known as a gateway to Siberia and famed for its natural beauty. The service will operate twice a week, utilizing a B737-900 aircraft seating 159 passengers in two classes, equipped with AVOD in all seats.

Geographically located at the border of Russia and Mongolia, Irkutsk is a popular tourism destination and the starting point for tours to Lake Baikal, considered to be the oldest, deepest and clearest freshwater lake in the world, also known as the ‘Blue Eye of Siberia’.

The two seasonal services will provide a great attraction to travelers seeking summer destinations in Russia.
