Korea's airlines will resume more overseas flights and routes in July, which have been suspended due to the coronavirus epidemic.
The national flag carrier Korean Air plans to resume its suspended routes to Dallas and Vienna and increase the number of flights it offers to other cities in the U.S., as well as London, Paris, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, industry sources said on Monday.
Asiana Airlines will resume suspended operations to London, Paris, Istanbul and Osaka. It will also increase its operations to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi and Bangkok, which have been significantly scaled back due to the epidemic.
A number of these flights will carry freight rather than passengers, however, as people remain reluctant to travel amid concerns over COVID-19.
Korea's two main airlines have resumed their long-haul destinations since the start of this month after being virtually idle for more than three months.
