In July, the Air France Paris-Seoul route is celebrating its 30th anniversary. The Company has been serving the South Korean capital since 1983 and currently offers two daily flights on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, including one code-shared flight with Korean Air. Air France customers benefit from products and services specially tailored for them (website in Korean, a dedicated Facebook page, welcome at the airport and special attentions on board). Happy anniversary!
In 1983, Air France was the first European airline to fly to South Korea with a once-weekly Paris-Seoul service operated by Boeing 747 jumbo. As from 1985, Air France increased the number of frequencies to Seoul, offering two weekly flights. In 1998, the Company signed an agreement with Korean Air to develop its services between Paris and Seoul.
Today, Air France offers 2 daily flights, including a code-shared flight with Korean Air, between Paris and Seoul. This flight schedule completes the two daily flights operated by KLM to Seoul on departure from Amsterdam-Schiphol.
The daily flight operated by Air France is served by Boeing 777-300 or 777-200 equipped with the La Première, Business, Premium Economy and Economy cabins.
