||Korea is situated in eastern Asia, located on the Korean Peninsula, and is divided into the two countries of North Korea and South Korea. Whilst South Korea has blossomed, North Korea has become more and more reclusive.
The available airlines and flights to Korea from South Africa depend on whether you want to visit North or South Korea in the main. North Korea is closed to international flights, the only exception being Beijing in neighbouring China. Therefore from South Africa you will need to look for flights to Beijing, then you must join a tour group in order to cross into North Korea. Independent travellers are not permitted to enter. One or two stop flights from South Africa are available to Beijing with a number of airlines, including Emirates, Cathay Pacific, Malaysia Airlines and KLM, or two stop flights with South African Airways.
To get a flight to South Korea is a different and far easier story! South Korea is very welcoming to visitors from South Africa and around the world. There are seven international airports in South Korea though most visitors will land at the capital city, Seoul. Seoul Incheon International Airport (airport code: ICN) welcomes flights from South Africa with Emirates, Cathay pacific, Malaysia Airlines and KLM, all with one stop en-route, or South Africa Airways offers two stop flights.
