Korean Air’s Promo for Their New Route to Croatia is Absolutely Magical

Koreans have been thrilled since Korean Air officially launched its Seoul-Zagreb route earlier this month.

The airline, named the world’s best performing in this year’s World Airline Report, landed its inaugural flight to the Croatian capital on Sept. 1.


Prior to the launch, Korean Air released a promo video titled “A Walk in Croatia,” which has since gone viral with nearly three million views.

The airline’s promo features top Croatian sites such as Plitvice Lakes, Dubrovnik, Zadar and Rovinj, according to Croatia Week.

Apparently, the promo also made it to Instagram, with a dedicated page posting photos of scenic Croatian sites to attract tourists.

Koreans gushed at the new route directly connecting the capital cities.

“Awesome (Plitvice)!”

“Dubrovnik is really cool.”

“I want to go to Croatia when I see this [Dubrovnik] picture.”

“It’s so pretty (Rovinj).”

“I’m going to see you (Zagreb).”

Korean Air will fly three times a week with an Airbus A330-200 jet until Oct. 28, the beginning of the 2018/19 winter season.

From then, the airline will use its Boeing 777-200ER, and from Jan. 2, 2019, it will use its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, according to TCN.

Korean Air has since announced strong bookings on the new line especially in late September around the Chuseok holiday (Sept. 23 to 25).

“Ticket sales and advanced booking numbers are in line with our expectations for this route and we are satisfied with its performance,” the airline said in a statement.

The Boeing aircrafts can accommodate 248 to 269 passengers for the new route.
