South Korea has amended its air services agreements with Mongolia and France.
The agreement with Mongolia will allow the introduction of a twice weekly Busan-Ulan Bator service, complementing the existing six times weekly Seoul-Ulan Bator frequencies, says South Korea’s ministry of land, infrastructure and transport.
France also granted permission for South Korean carriers to operate Airbus A380 aircraft to France, together with an additional weekly frequency for Asiana Airlines. In a separate statement, the airline adds it will launch a fifth weekly Seoul Incheon-Paris service from 24 May onwards.
Innovata schedules show that Korean Air now operates a daily A380 service from Seoul Incheon to Paris, while Asiana flies four times weekly on the same route, using Boeing 777-200ER aircraft.
