Jin Air plans to restart flight services on routes from Incheon to Bangkok (Thailand), Taipei (China), Narita and Osaka (Japan) and Vietnam from June 1st, to bring overseas Koreans, those studying abroad and businessmen to the country, the company said in a statement.
The company said it will operate one to two flights a week to the five cities from June to also meet cargo-carrying orders, it said.
Jin Air has suspended all of its international flights since April, as countries strengthened entry restrictions on incoming passengers to stem the spread of the new coronavirus. But seven domestic routes have been in service despite the virus outbreak.
Apart from Jin Air, other budget carriers of the RoK have also planned to resume international flights. Jeju Air said it will reopen flights to Manila in the Philippines in June, while Air Busan and Air Seoul will restore international routes in July./.
