Korean Air Lines starts regular flights to MaldivesKorean Air Lines said yesterday it launched a new route to Sri Lanka and the Maldives Saturday.
The national carrier ran chartered flights to the Maldives occasionally, and it normally took at least 15 hours to get to there from Incheon as it required traveling via other countries such as Singapore and Dubai.
The new route will operate three times a week ? Monday, Wednesday and Saturday ? and use a 276-seat A330-300 carrier.
From Incheon, the flight departs at 10:40 p.m., arrives at Colombo, Sri Lanka’s largest city, at 4:10 a.m. the next day, departs Colombo at 5:40 a.m. and arrives at the Maldives at 6:40 a.m.
Inbound flights will see the plane take off at 3:30 p.m. from the Maldives, arrive at Colombo at 5:30 p.m., depart at 6:50 p.m. and arrive at Incheon at 6:10 a.m. the next day.
