South Korea is expanding its air services agreements (ASAs) with key international destinations, including India and Austria.
Korean Air
Airlines   A relaxation of codeshare restrictions
The new agreement with India raises allocations from 6X-weekly to 19X-weekly for carriers between the two countries, and also includes a relaxation of codeshare restrictions between operators in the two countries.

The Austria-Korea agreement is more wide-ranging and completely removes any restrictions on flight numbers for direct services between the two countries. The previous ASA saw only 4X-weekly flight schedules, with Korean Air taking the majority (3X-weekly) between Korea’s Incheon International and Austria’s Vienna International.

This open agreement with Austria is only the second of its type for Korea; it has a similar unrestricted numbers ASA with Spanish operators as part of its push into European markets.
