S7 Airlines launches flights to Korea

S7 Airlines, a member of the oneworld® global aviation alliance®, from the 25th of June 2014 launches direct regular flights from Irkutsk to Seoul (the Republic of Korea).

S7 Airlines resumes flights to Seoul after a five-year break. Resuming flights to the Republic of Korea is a part of the S7 Airlines programme on the route network development in Siberia and in the Far East.

Flights will be operated once a week on Wednesdays. Departure from Irkutsk at 05:45, arrival in Seoul at 09:45. Return flight departs at 11:15 and arrives in Irkutsk at 15:30. Passengers from other cities can fly to Seoul with a convenient connection at the airport of Irkutsk.

Flights will be performed on modern Airbus A320 aircrafts designed to carry 158 passengers in economy and business class cabins.

“In the future we are going to perform flights to the capital of Korea from other cities of the S7 Airlines route network. We hope that the flight will be popular. Direct flights and the visa-free regime for Russian citizens coming to the country for a short-term stay make this destination attractive for travelling”, Vadim Besperstov, S7 Airlines Strategic Development Director, noted.
