American Airlines Launches New Service Between Dallas/Fort Worth And Seoul, South Korea

FORT WORTH, Texas, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Airlines today launches daily nonstop service between Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Incheon International Airport (ICN) in Seoul, South Korea – reinforcing American*s commitment to expanding and strengthening its global presence, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. Through American*s extensive network from Dallas/Fort Worth, customers traveling from South Korea now have one-stop access to nearly 200 additional destinations.

The new service is operated as part of American*s joint business agreement with fellow oneworld alliance member Japan Airlines. Through oneworld member airlines and their affiliates, American*s customers have access to more than 145 destinations within Asia.

**South Korea*s continued growth as a key business market has created increased demand for direct travel to and from the region,** said Chuck Schubert, American*s Vice President – Network Planning. **This new route enhances our expanding global network and further establishes American*s position as the preferred carrier for one-stop connections between Asia and major business and leisure destinations in North, Central and South America.**

**The new daily service to Seoul on American Airlines represents more outstanding news for travelers in Dallas/Fort Worth and for DFW Airport,** said Jeff Fegan, CEO of DFW Airport. **At DFW, it is our mission to deliver a world class travel experience for visitors to Dallas/Fort Worth as well as to expand our region*s presence and visibility around the globe, and this new service from our great partners at American will help bring more business and leisure travelers and economic opportunities.**

American designed the inflight experience for the DFW-ICN service with special attention to the culture of the airline*s Korean customers. The new route is operated with a Boeing 777-200 aircraft, featuring 16 Flagship Suite seats in First Class that transform into fully lie-flat 6-foot-6-inch beds with drop-down armrests. The aircraft will also feature inflight entertainment at every seat, including Korean movies and pop music (K-Pop), Hollywood movies (with Korean audio or subtitles), and games.

Inflight menus feature a variety of traditional Korean and Asian options, including Bibimbap – a signature Korean dish, Kimchi Chicken, Korean Braised Pork Belly and Seafood Udon Noodles in First and Business Class, and chicken with plum sauce served in the Main Cabin. American will also offer a Shin Ramen Noodle Cup as a snack option to customers in all cabins. In addition, American specifically recruited and hired flight attendants fluent in both English and Korean to better serve customers on this flight.

While at Incheon International Airport, American*s premium customers will have access to Asiana*s concourse lounges, which offer an enhanced customer experience at the airport.

American Airlines is also offering AAdvantage® members up to 50,000 miles when they fly round-trip on the new route on eligible fares from May 9 through Aug. 15, 2013.

In addition to the new route between Dallas/Fort Worth and Seoul, American is launching new international service to Europe this summer, delivering on the airline*s business plan and network strategy designed to provide more access and choices for customers in key international markets. Beginning June 12, American will add new service between New York – JFK and Dublin. Earlier this year, American also added new service between Dallas/Fort Worth and Lima, Peru, and Chicago O*Hare and Dusseldorf, Germany.
