A subsidiary of Asiana Airlines, the carrier commenced service operations on 11-Jul-2016, with a four times daily Seoul Gimpo-Jeju service. The carrier completed trial services between Seoul Gimpo-Gwangju/Jeju/Seoul Incheon between 15-Jun-2016 and 28-Jun-2016 ahead of its official launch. During the initial stages, Air Seoul operates with a fleet of A320 aircraft. It commenced international operations on 10-Oct-2016, having applied for 16 routes covering five countries, including to Osaka, Kumamoto, Toyama, Qingdao, Yantai, Weihai, Phnom Penh, Da Nang and Kota Kinabalu.

On 29-Sep-2021, Korean Air confirmed it received approval from Korea Development Bank (KDB) for its post merger integration (PMI) plan to acquire a controlling stake in Asiana Airlines for KRW1.8 trillion (USD1.5 billion) and subsequently merge the two airlines. The PMI includes provisions for gradually merging the two airlines into a single full service carrier under the Korean Air brand, integrating Korean Air's LCC subsidiary Jin Air with Asiana's LCC subsidiaries Air Seoul and Air Busan.
