  • High season is considered to be January, November and December. The cheapest month to fly from the United States is April.
  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest South Korea flight deals.
  • The majority of Americans who visit South Korea choose to fly through John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). This airport is well-liked since it serves as a hub for so many reputable airlines that fly internationally from the United States. Due to pricing competition, travelers departing from this airport for South Korea are likely to receive ticket discounts.
  • If your flight from the US is planned to land in South Korea at night and you're taking the Incheon International Airport (ICN) from the JFK route, you might want to think about reserving a hotel next to the ICN Airport. Choosing the Incheon Airport Transit Hotel, located at Terminal 1, is one of the best considerations. This airport provides a complimentary shuttle service to and from ICN Airport.
  • The best option for US parents who want to take their kids on holiday to South Korea is likely to be a flight on Korean Air 86, Asiana 221, or Korean Air 82 through JFK to ICN. Non-stop flights from the USA to South Korea are available year-round from this airport. There is a lower likelihood that your children will be exhausted before landing in South Korea from the USA thanks to the availability of direct flights, which make it possible for travelers to get there in the minimum period of time.
  • The best spot for travelers to unwind while waiting for a flight to their intended destinations is in airport lounges. The majority of low-cost American passengers who want to unwind in an airport lounge on their way to South Korea opt to depart through Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC). Travelers on a tight budget can comfortably relax at Delta Sky Club at the SLC Airport, which provides first-rate amenities at a competitive price.
  • Passengers suffering from mobility challenges need to think about departing from JFK Airport and landing at Jeju International Airport (CJU) when going to South Korea. Visitors with particular requirements and mobility issues can request free aid with their bags, medical support, plus wheelchair transfer from a cab to an aircraft at JFK and CJU Airports.
  • When you’re booking your flight to South Korea from the US, there are a few different cities you can fly into. Seoul and Busan are the biggest cities in South Korea, making them popular choices to fly into. Flying into Seoul will give you better access to northern South Korea and Busan will give you better access to southern South Korea.
  • While some hotels in South Korea may accept US Dollars, you can often get a better rate by using the country’s local currency: The South Korean Won. Visa and Mastercard are accepted by most businesses, though it can be handy to have some cash on hand for street vendors and other instances where cards aren’t readily accepted.
  • For travelers looking to visit the border with North Korea, you’ll benefit by flying into Seoul. Most of the international flight traffic from South Korea to the United States comes through Seoul and flying there puts you in close proximity to the DMZ. From Seoul you can take the designated DMZ Peace Train straight to the Demilitarized Zone.
  • If you’re looking to fly into a city where you can have equal access to the rest of South Korea, it can be handy to fly into Daegu. Not only is Daegu a popular destination and a major South Korean city, it is located conveniently towards the center of the country.
  • Jeju Island is one of South Korea’s most popular tourist destinations outside of the major cities, and there are a few different ways to get there. You can take a flight to Jeju from the US, with a likely layover in Taipei or Seoul, or you can fly to Busan and take a ferry the rest of the way.

Pros: "Crew was grest and helpful"
Cons: "Seats on 777 are not padded very well for a 14 hour flight"
Cons: "Friendly and courteous stewardess. All it takes is a smile that makes your long trip a better experience."
Pros: "Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Was seated near some noisy distractions i.e. crying baby."
Pros: "Crew super nice, appreciated all the free food that was provided during flight and hot towel."

Pros: "Overall good, comfortable, nice and food and entertainment was very good quality."
Cons: "I didn't realized we were on a code share flight from Seoul to Hanoi until we got to check in counter and they couldn't issue boarding pass even though it was a through check in for till Hanoi. In our booking itinerary it was printed as Korean air with a small print that said operated by jinair. It wasn't so bad but the hassle of going to another terminal to board and being in a smaller aircraft after a long flight wasn't the best."
Pros: "Great service. Seamless Transfer at Incheon aurprot. Courteous and helpful staff"
Pros: "Excellent service and probably the most efficient boarding process I’ve ever been a part of. Food service went by without a hitch, and the stewardesses knew English very well so we felt comfortable and welcomed. I also really liked being able to get terminal/travel information from the infotainment system. Being that I’ve never been to ICN or NRT before, having access to terminal maps and basic instructions on how to find connecting flights and baggage claim areas was probably one of the most helpful features of the flight!"
Cons: "I am 5’11” and found my seat somewhat uncomfortable. It didn’t detract from being able to sleep at all, but it did seem like the seats on this airline might be at its most comfortable with shorter passengers."
Pros: "Economy seating leg room is better than US domestic airlines."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "The crew is awesome. They’re so polite and helpful."
Cons: "I think more options that don’t involve seafood would be good, but I’ll also consider selecting a specific meal in the future."

Pros: "Very friendly and caring"
Cons: "i can not think of anything. Great crew Great experience"
Pros: "The cabin crews were excellent. Food was delicious. Lots of leg room in Economy class. Overall had a great experience"

Pros: "Slept much of the time"

Cons: "Nothing bad"
Pros: "Service Staff Price Professionalism as the ticketing area Great in dealing with children"
Cons: "The lounge was somehow poor and noisy because of the airport constructions."
Cons: "I did not fly out that night due to the covid testing needed. We bought the ticket November 11 it did not say we needed to get tested before flying When we went to check in there was a long line because a lot of people that was flying out did not know also about getting tested before flying Eva employees said that this protocol started December 1st if that’s the case why didn’t they email travelers that bought tickets before December 1st And let them know that covid19 test needed. Also at check in we were inline for 2 hours just to let us know we couldn’t fly out they should have a Monitor saying “ ATTENTION PASSENGERS IF YOU DON’T HAVE COVID-19 TEST RESULTS IN HAND YOU CANNOT A BOARD.” So that people didn’t half to stay in line for so long."
Cons: "I was not happy with the meal. The taste and appearance are not satisfactory"
Cons: "Only the space was lacking...not a lot of room for such a long flight and having to sleep. But it was okay!"

Cons: "Terrible service. It’s a nightmare to fly with. And I have a baby with me that even worse to fly with Eva."

The airport staff in Taipei were very efficient in taking the passengers who needed wheelchair assistance to their connecting gates!!"
Cons: "Not sure if it’s because of the language barrier but l found one flight attendant to be rude in talking to some elderly passengers. However, the rest of the crew were pleasant"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "The beef dinner made me ill. I had no way to pick my seat in the checkin process. The seat I had (K) has an extra box under the seat in front, so it restricted leg room. There were a total of 37 movies to view, over half of which were non-Hollywood."
Pros: "Eva does a great job, nice personnel, good food...probably better than most."
Cons: "More leg room. (My usual complaint,) Premium Economy Very Nice, but at a premium price. I flew once...nice to be offered a glass of Champagne once seated!"

Pros: "One crew member went above and beyond and took my lei to keep it cool so it wouldn't ruin through out the flight."
Cons: "On our trip to Hawaii, our plane was delayed 3 times and ultimately canceled. We had to go with another airline to get to Hawaii the same day. On the way back, our trip was delayed again an hour."

Cons: "I hate cup noodles and I hate that that’s the only option for a snack. The food overall was not great."
Pros: "Watching movies of choice at finger tip."
Cons: "Seats didn’t recline properly, you have to put some strength in it. Would feel sorry if your not strong enough to push back."

Cons: "Have to pay for all movies and TV shows. Too many announcements."
Cons: "My surfboard bag was ripped and all straps were broken and was then patched up with duct tape!!! What the F#€*?!! It looked like it fell off the plane and was run over. Plus my bike box was torn to bits and patched with duct tape and was cut open by someone’s knife, I ended up loosing bike parts because of this. Horrible bag handling by the crew!! This was all noticed when I picked up my bags in Auckland"
Pros: "Service was good. The staff is friendly. There is enough leg room. Take-off and landing were on-time. Overall, they seemed professional. I would fly with Hawaiian again."

Pros: "Food and drink were included, plane was very comfortable, and the service was friendly and professional... great experience."
Pros: "Standard inter island flight"
Cons: "Ridiculous that kayak itinerary included a 3 hour layover here in Kona. I had to wait for three not-full flights to HNL to leave before I could take mine. I couldn’t change because i had checked luggage, also annoying. No gate agents in boarding area so I had to go back through security."
Cons: "The crew should speak up and wait for answers before moving quickly away with beverages. Seat cushions are hard and thin. movie selections are terrible and few. worst selection ever."
Pros: "The whole travel experience on Asiana is great from easy check in to great onboard crew, food and service."

Cons: "In flight entertainment system was a bit outdated."
Pros: "Best flight I’ve ever been on!"
Cons: "It had just snowed 20” in Seattle, so we had a short delay."
Pros: "I'll give a more complete and less-biased review if I get it back!"
Cons: "one check-in crew (female) at gate was not very nice. My mom is disabled & in her personal wheelchair. The other check-in crew members told us (5 total) to go together to board the plane then this female staff told us we can only have one family member go in with my mom (to take care of the wheelchair then assist her on the plane) next time we board the plane. Their messages are inconsistent & her attitude was uncalled for, especially when she let other disabled passengers on with their more than one family members & the other Asiana staff members told us to go in at the same time."
Pros: "I love how they give importance to parents traveling with little kids."
Cons: "They ran out of food choices. I have been flying with Asiana for the longest time and this has happened thrice."
Pros: "The crew was great and the ammentities made me feel comfortable"
Pros: "We liked the service and food and had plenty of space since the flight was half empty."
Cons: "Flight was 50 minutes late leaving Seattle because Asiana was waiting for a connecting flight. We still made our connection in Seoul so no problem."
