Air France celebrates 30 years of flights on the Paris - Seoul route
This month, Air France celebrates 30 years of flights on route Paris - Seoul. In 1983, Air France was the first airline in Europe to operate flights to Seoul, South Korea. It started with a weekly flight honored with Boeing 747-400 aircraft. From 1985, the frequency has increased to 2 weekly flights, and currently operates a daily flight.
