Virgin Atlantic launches codeshare with Korean Air

Virgin Atlantic has launched a codeshare agreement with Korean Air, one of the founding members of the SkyTeam alliance, which Virgin Atlantic joined earlier this month.

The first phase of the agreement will allow customers booking through Virgin Atlantic the opportunity to travel directly to Incheon Airport, in South Korea’s capital, Seoul. 

By June customers will be able to connect onwards from Seoul to a variety of destinations throughout Japan, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand. 

Virgin Atlantic Flying Club members will be able to take advantage of SkyPriority services at Seoul Incheon, including priority check-in, baggage handling and boarding. 

The move is part of Virgin Atlantic’s plans to grow its Asian network. From May, the airline will resume services to Shanghai alongside an expanded codeshare with IndiGo throughout India and beyond.
