Boston, MA - Boston and Seoul, Korea are two of the world's great business and technology centers, yet travel between the two cities has been cumbersome to this point. That is all about to change, as non-stop flights are set to begin next Spring.
Korean Airlines and the Massachusetts Port Authority announced a new route to be serviced five days per week, traveling directly between Seoul Incheon International Airport and Logan International Airport.
Currently, Logan has only four non-stop routes to locations in Asia. When Seoul is added to this list, it will join Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Tokyo, allowing businesspeople, vacationers, and students to reach the Korean Peninsula more easily.
In fact, it has been reported that there will be high demand for this route, servicing the many businesses in tech, health care, and financial services with overlap between these two hubs. The demand will be further bolstered by both the growing tourism in South Korea and the numerous Korean students (of the ~300,000+ total students) who attend schools in the Greater Boston Area every year.
The exact time line is still not disclosed, but the joint announcement between the airline and MA Port Authority cited the time to receive required approvals for the Spring estimate.
