Korean start-up Air Premia hopes to fly between Seoul and Los Angeles

                                 The Korean start-up budget airline Air Premia hopes to fly between Seoul and Los Angeles, its spokesperson confirmed this week. The airline is scheduled to take delivery of a brand new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners in 2020 and hopes to start the route during 2021.

Air Premia spokesperson said, "The Los Angeles route has more demand than supply," and is a popular destination for Koreans as it is home to the largest community of Koreans outside of Koreans.  The route has also seen a dramatic downturn in seats being offered, due to Singapore Airlines dropping the route and Korean Air downgauging aircraft. 

The airline recently signed a long-term lease deal with  Air Lease Corporation for three Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 1000-TEN engines.  The first aircraft is scheduled to deliver in July 2020, followed by the second aircraft in September 2020, and the third in November 2020.  In total, the carrier plans to operate ten 787-9 aircraft within five years.
