On Thursday, American Airlines initiated its daily nonstop service between Dallas/Fort Worth Airport and Seoul's Incheon airport.
The flight is the second non-stop daily flight to Korea out of DFW. Korean Airlines, which has been flying the DFW-Seoul route for years, recently increased its service from five times a week to daily.
"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," DFW Airport chief executive Jeff Fegan said in a statement.
American will use a Boeing 777-200 aircraft with three classes of service on the route. The flight leaves DFW at 10:20 a.m., arriving in Seoul at 2:50 p.m. the next day. The return flight leaves Seoul at 4:50 p.m., landing at DFW at 4:05 p.m. on the same day, local time.
