AirAsia Japan to launch international service to South Korea

11-Oct-2012 8:01 AM

AirAsia Japan announced (10-Oct-2012) plans to launch international service to South Korea, with planned Seoul Incheon service. The daily Tokyo Narita-Seoul Incheon route will be launched on 28-Oct-2012 - see Route Changes Table for more information. AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes said, “AirAsia Japan’s announcement of this international route today is a dream come true for us, and I am looking forward to see the Narita – Incheon flights begin operations.” AirAsia Japan CEO Kazuyuki Iwakata added, “We are extremely happy and proud to enable so many guests to fly and enjoy the AirAsia experience since we started operations about three months ago. The announcement of our new international routes to Korea gives me much pleasure as AirAsia Japan can now further expand the AirAsia Group’s existing extensive route network, connecting Japan and other countries in Asia. It makes much sense to begin our international flights to Korea, our next-door neighbor and I am sure that this will further enable and inspire more people to travel to international destinations as the flights take only about 2 hours from Narita to Incheon". AirAsia Japan’s international services will also be operated utilising 180-seat A320 aircraft. [more - original PR]
