Korean Air to Launch Direct Flights to Lisbon, Portugal

Korean Air will launch scheduled charter flights to Lisbon, Portugal, from September 11 to October 25.

The airline will operate three weekly flights between Seoul Incheon and Lisbon on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. These flights will make a total of 20 round trips during the two months, serviced by the airline’s Boeing 787-9 fleet.

The scheduled charter flights are the only nonstop flights between Northeast Asia and Lisbon. Previously, travelers had to transfer in neighboring countries such as France and Spain, or switch to land transport upon arrival in Europe. The new direct flights will streamline the journey, making trips to Lisbon and its adjacent cities more accessible.

Lisbon is nestled along the banks of the Tejo (Tagus) River on the Iberian Peninsula, and offers a combination of historical and contemporary attractions. From the beautiful beaches to multiple UNESCO World Heritage sites, the city is an appealing destination for both leisure seekers and cultural explorers. Lisbon is frequently portrayed in various media and remains a popular destination for backpackers and honeymooners.

For those looking to immerse in local culture, a visit to the Jeronimos Monastery in the Belém district is highly recommended. This site is celebrated as the cradle of the Portuguese egg tart. Additionally, a tram ride through Lisbon’s streets offers an intimate view of its rich history and vibrant daily life. Beyond Lisbon, the city of Porto is easily accessible by train. Known for its unique charm and cultural richness, Porto provides a deeper glimpse into Portugal’s local flavors and traditions.

Tickets are available on Korean Air website, mobile app, or through travel agencies. Korean Air also plans to extend the operations of the route into the winter season.
