Korean Air, South Korea’s flag carrier, is poised to resume its nonstop flights between Las Vegas (LAS) and Seoul-Incheon (ICN) as of July 10, 2022.

When it returns to Las Vegas, Korean Air will fly to a total of 11 cities across the United States.

Let’s take a look at this intriguing route resumption from Korean Air.

Nonstop Flights Between Seoul and Las Vegas Are Coming Back

Come this summer, Korean Air will once again connect the South Korean capital, Seoul, with Las Vegas with thrice-weekly nonstop flights. They’ll operate on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays with the following schedule:

  • Depart Las Vegas (LAS) 12:10 p.m. — Arrive Seoul (ICN) 5:40 p.m. (+1)
  • Depart Seoul (ICN) 2:10 p.m — Arrive Las Vegas (LAS) 10:10 a.m.

Due to the time difference between the 2 cities (Seoul is 16 hours ahead of Las Vegas), the westbound segment that originates in Seoul and terminates in Las Vegas will arrive 4 hours before its departure time.

This route will be operated by the Airbus A330. These aircraft have an outdated 2-2-2 configuration in business class, but at least passengers can enjoy the comfort of a lie-flat seat. Back in economy, seats are 10 abreast in a 2-4-2 configuration.

Hot Tip: There are numerous ways to book Korean Air flights with points. You can use the carrier’s own program, SKYPASS, or you can use Delta SkyMiles or Air France/KLM Flying Blue miles.

Flying Between the U.S. and South Korea

Korean Air offers the most nonstop services from the U.S. to South Korea. Right now, you can pick up a flight from 10 cities. Las Vegas will become Korean’s 11th U.S. gateway this summer:

The country’s second-largest carrier, Asiana, connects Seoul with 5 U.S. cities: Honolulu (HNL), Los Angeles (LAX), New York (JFK), San Francisco (SFO), and Seattle (SEA).

The “Big 3” U.S. carriers also offer service to Seoul. You can fly nonstop with American Airlines from Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW); with Delta from Atlanta (ATL), Detroit (DTW), Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP — resumes in October), Portland (PDX — begins in September), and Seattle (SEA); and with United from San Francisco (SFO).

Flight Thoughts

You’ll once again be able to fly nonstop between Las Vegas and Seoul when Korean Air resumes its service in July. The route is likely to be popular with Korean tourists visiting the gambling capital of the world and will also provide the only nonstop service from Nevada to South Korea.
