Direct Qantas flights from Australia to South Korea take off

The 11-hour Qantas flights to Seoul will operate four days per week

Qantas Retains Top Spot as Most Punctual Major Domestic Airline

Qantas will today launch flights to another new international destination, with direct services between Sydney and Seoul taking off for the first time in nearly 15 years to meet growing demand.

Seoul is one of the 28 international ports that Qantas has resumed or launched new services to since Australia’s borders reopened. The 11-hour Qantas flights to Seoul will operate four days per week during the peak summer season with an Airbus A330 aircraft. Flights will operate three times a week between May and October.

The flights add to Jetstar’s Sydney-Seoul service, which commenced last month operating three days per week. Together, these flights offer customers more than 200,000 seats on the route annually and the choice to fly to Seoul six days a week, with either a premium or low fares airline.


Qantas flight QF87 is scheduled to depart Sydney at 9.35 am, with the launch marked by celebrations for customers at check-in. To celebrate the new Seoul route, Qantas has introduced a number of new Korean-inspired menu items inflight, including Beef bulgogi, vegetarian bibimbap, and Banchan.
