Perú/South Korea: Joint Korean Air, LAN Perú Via Los Angeles Now Flying

According to The Latin American Tribune, Korean Air and LAN Perú launched on Tuesday (October 21) daily jointly-operated flights between Seoul and Lima, making reservations for travelers easier.

The code-sharing agreement will allow travelers to fly between Seoul’s Incheon International Airport and Jorge Chávez International Airport in Lima with a layover in Los Angeles with a single reservation through Korean Air.

Also, passengers coming from Perú will be able to book their flight through LAN Perú.

COMMENT: Until now it was necessary to have two separate tickets with each airline, Korean Air said in a statement.

This agreement to operate flights with shared codes will significantly facilitate services to passengers and give them additional benefits, such as the possibility of accumulating air miles with Korean Air even if they fly with LAN Perú from Los Angeles, and vice versa.

LAN Perú is part of the Latam Airlines Group founded in 2012 as a result of a merger between Chile’s LAN and Brazil’s Tam companies, and is considered to be the main Latin American airline.
