SkyTeam partners KLM and Air France are selling cheap flights to South Korea from Germany, Hungary, Denmark, and the Czech Republic. Prices start at merely €386. Luggage, however, is only included for status holders. Otherwise, you can select the fare that includes luggage for a surcharge of roughly €80.
We strongly recommend booking directly on KLM’s website so that you can communicate directly with the airline in the event of irregularities. There, all tickets departing by June 30 can even be canceled free of charge. However, it may take a few weeks for the refund to be processed. Alternatively, you can rebook without having to pay a rebooking fee, but still having to pay a possible price difference.

Information & Tips for Seoul
Seoul is the capital of South Korea and with 11.8 million inhabitants and a metropolitan region of around 25.6 million also the largest. The city is an important cultural and economic center in the Asian region.
Flights to Seoul
Flights to Korea are unfortunately not as cheap as to China or Southeast Asia, but there are – especially if you are flexible – some bargains that are definitely worth it.
For flights to Seoul, one should usually be prepared to pay between 400€ and 500€ for a good deal. Often there are also bargains in Business Class, especially from LOT.
You should avoid the school holidays, especially the summer holidays. During this period, airfares quickly rise to more than 700€ and partly reach heights of up to 1.000€ for a direct flight in economy. Good deals are not to be expected during this period.
Best Time to Travel
The best time to visit Seoul is from March to May or from September to November. Thanks to comparatively mild temperatures and plenty of sunshine, these months are best suited for tourism.
From the Airport to the City Center
International long-haul flights usually arrive at Seoul-Incheon Airport. The express train to the city centre departs every 30 minutes and takes 40-45 minutes and costs approx. 6,50€. For a taxi you pay between 47€ and 70€.
