Starting from July 1, 2019, Etihad Airways will deploy its Airbus A380 aircraft on its daily service to Seoul, South Korea.
The capital’s Incheon International Airport will join London Heathrow, Paris Charles de Gaulle, New York JFK and Sydney as a destination served by the airline’s award-winning aircraft.
On the development, chief commercial officer, Etihad Aviation Group, Robin Kamark remarked: “Since launching our services to Seoul Incheon in December 2010, the route has proved tremendously successful and we have welcomed over 1.2 million guests on our flights to and from South Korea. This reinforces the strong ties between our two countries and the importance Etihad continues to place on the Korean market.”
He continued: “The introduction of our award-winning Airbus A380 will provide our guests with the most revolutionary inflight experience. The Etihad A380 embodies our ‘Choose Well’ brand promise perfectly, offering every type of traveller a flying experience tailored to meet their requirements, and to capture their imagination.”
Etihad Airways’ 486-seat A380 will provide customers on the route with new inflight experiences, such as The Residence – a luxurious three-room cabin which can accommodate two guests in complete privacy; and nine private First Apartments. The double-decker aircraft also boasts 70 Business Studios and 405 Economy Smart seats. This includes 80 Economy Space seats with a seat pitch of up to 36 inches.
