Korean Air will roll down the shutters on its Melbourne-Seoul route next year.
A spokesperson for Korean Air confirmed to Australian Business Traveller this morning that the KE125/126 flight, which runs three times per week between Melbourne and the South Korean capital, will close from March 2013.
The airline says that passengers already booked on those flights will be offered a Qantas domestic flight to/from Melbourne to connect with Korean Air's Sydney-Seoul services.
"As part of our plan for affected ticket holders, one night’s accommodation will be provided in Sydney for misconnecting flights when departing / exiting Australia".
"All reissue fees will be waived for these ticketed passengers wishing to reroute via Sydney on Qantas, and all refund penalties will be waived for ticketed passengers on KE125/ KE126 services that were scheduled to operate after March 3rd, 2013.
