New Korea path from Melbourne

Seoul searching?

The South Korean carrier Asiana Airlines has unveiled plans to launch seasonal Melbourne flights linking Victoria with South Korea.

The new route will kick off from December 26, industry portal Travel Mole reports.

The full-service carrier will operate two direct flights a week between Melbourne Airport and the South Korean capital of Seoul using Airbus A350 aircraft.

With a population of more than nine million people, Seoul is a global economic hub and the major gateway for outbound tourism.

Fares are now on sale with Melbourne flights operating every Tuesday and Thursday to Seoul.

“We are excited to welcome Asiana to Melbourne and to add Seoul to our growing network," Melbourne Airport Chief of Aviation Jim Parashos said.

Melbourne Airport's ties with South Korea have been growing, with Korean-based Lotte taking over the operation of the airport’s duty free business in June.

Asiana Airlines is set to merge with national flag carrier Korean Air once approval is finalised by several overseas regulators.
