South Korea improving airspace access to Japan and China


South Korea’s Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs (MLTM) has unveiled a number of airspace enhancements that will improve flights and access to some of its most important neighbours. The moves are part of Korea’s attempts to enhance liberalisation and cooperation with selected Northeast Asian nations, seeking to enhance the competitiveness and environmental performance of its local carriers and improve the convenience of operation for all stakeholders.

In Sep-2011, South Korea and Japan reached a MoU to enhance cooperation between their aeronautical authorities.
