British Airways will fly to Heathrow to Seoul from December
More people will likely be looking for
travel insurance to cover trips to South Korea after British Airways announced a new route to Seoul.
The new service will offer flights six times a week from Heathrow Airport and it's likely to be warmly welcomed by holidaymakers and those on business travel alike.
People can already buy tickets for the service, which launches on December 2.
The latest announcement will further boost services between the UK and Asia, with Air China also recently launching a Gatwick-Beijing route flying four times every week.
The Heathrow-Seoul service comes in response to growing numbers of travellers exploring South Korea and the increasing number of business travellers who need to jet there as the city grows in stature on an economic level.
Drew Crawley, commercial director at BA, said: "We have seen significant growth in customers wanting to travel to Seoul for both business and pleasure. It is a vibrant city with a strong economic base.
"Equally, there are vast numbers of South Korean companies wishing to come to the UK to do business as Asia's economies continue to grow. We want to ensure that we do our bit in bringing as much business and tourism to the UK as we can."
