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. Their air traffic control centres agreed to expand their operating hours for flights over the Sea of Japan (known as the East Sea in South Korea), which were previously limited to night-time only operations.
