South Korean full-service carrier Asiana Airlines said Friday that it would expand its Incheon-New York route to twice a day starting Nov. 24.

The air carrier currently flies Incheon-New York route only once in the morning. The newly added flight will depart from Incheon at 9:50 p.m. and the company plans to assign the new A350 flight, which can sit 311 passengers for user convenience during the long-haul flight.

The company said that this new route would benefit those who want to depart to New York after work on weekdays.
