SEOUL Ė Korean Air and LAN Peru launched on Tuesday daily jointly-operated flights between Seoul and Lima, making reservations for travelers easier.
The code-sharing agreement will allow travelers to fly between Seoulís Incheon International Airport and Jorge Chavez airport in Lima with a layover in Los Angeles with a single reservation through Korean Air.
Also, passengers coming from Peru will be able to book their flight through LAN Peru.
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 Peru from Los Angeles, and vice versa.
LAN Peru is part of the Latam Airlines Group founded in 2012 as a result of a merger between Chileís LAN and Brazilís Tam companies, and is considered to be the main Latin American airline.
