Asiana Airlines has filed changes to its Winter 2023/24 schedule by opting to downgrade its Barcelona flights and upgrade its Paris CDG flights instead.

Without further ado, let’s get into those changes.

Asiana Airlines has taken the decision to downgrade its service to Barcelona from thrice weekly to twice weekly for the Winter 2023/24 season.

The carrier will also change the equipment from the Boeing 777-200ER to the Airbus A350-900XWB, which could potentially offer the same level of capacity, thus not needing the third flight.

This means that the airline will be increasing services to Paris CDG from five weekly, which they previously opted for, to six weekly instead.

For Asiana Airlines, the Airbus A350-900 service will be maintained instead of initially wanting to use the 777-200ER.

It remains clear that the Airbus A350-900 is becoming more of a prevalent item for Asiana Airlines, especially with its third destination edit.

The Boeing 777-200ER will once again be replaced by the Airbus aircraft on the Seoul-Istanbul rotation, with these flights planned to operate thrice weekly.

What remains clear is that the Korean carrier knows what equipment is working out for them, especially with newer cabins, and offering a better product than on the dated 777-200ER.

Looking ahead, all eyes will be on the airline to see how the Paris and Barcelona services perform, with this making considerable sense with Paris CDG being busier than Barcelona.

But for now, all eyes are on Asiana Airlines to see how much further they can take this.
