Gradually ramping up
With South Korea reopening to visitors and no longer required to quarantine, Korea Air is responding to the latent demand by reintroducing these destinations.
If you are planning to travel, it is advisable to check the entry requirements (the UK FCDO has an excellent note of what tests are required), as well as a Korean Electronic Travel Authorization depending on your travel purpose.
