Korean Air Cargo Returns to Halifax Stanfield

5/24/2014 8:05:51 AM

Halifax International Airport Authority (HIAA) has announced Korean Air Cargo will launch a weekly Sunday service to Incheon, South Korea on an all cargo Boeing 777F aircraft.


Beginning May 25, the carrier expects to uplift a minimum of 40,000 kilograms of live lobster, with an estimated $580,000 export value to the province. The service will continue every Sunday until the end of August.
“This is the first same plane direct service to a major Asian hub, Incheon,” says Joyce Carter, HIAA President and CEO. “It’s fast, even with a tech stop for fuel in Anchorage. The total elapsed time from ‘wheels up’ at Halifax to landing in Seoul is less than 14 hours. This is fantastic for fresh seafood and in particular for the ever increasing Asian appetite for live lobster.”
Operating out of Gateway Facilities, the flight will arrive in Halifax at 12:45 a.m. from Toronto and depart for Incheon at 2:50 a.m. It will stop for fuel in Anchorage, Alaska. The airline has operated cargo flights at Halifax Stanfield in the past on a charter basis, primarily in December.
Korean Air is the largest airline in South Korea. Its international passenger division and cargo division serves 130 cities in 45 countries.
