Korean Air has launched cargo flights between Incheon and Delhi, India on 17 July.

Korean Air currently operates direct passenger flights from Incheon to Mumbai and Delhi, each three and five times a week.

Korean Air will operate the route with a Boeing 777F thrice weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The flight will depart from Incheon at 23:10, make a stop in Hanoi, Vietnam, and arrive in Delhi at 06:15 the next day.

The return flight from Delhi to Incheon will feature two stops, one in Vienna, Austria and the other in Milan, Italy.

 “Demand for air cargo from Asia to India has shown a sharp boost recently, an average of 6.5% annual increase in the last three years,” a Korean Air spokesperson said. “We are anticipating new demand and improved profitability through optimized cargo routes.”

The Boeing 777F has a maximum payload of over 100 tons. Once filled with fuel, it can travel over 9,000 kilometers (5,593 miles).
