After Korean-based airlines reduced their flights to Japan amid the ongoing Japan-South Korea trade dispute, Peach Aviation has become the first Japanese carrier to announce a reduction of flights to South Korea.

Citing a drop in bookings, Peach will suspend its New Chitose to Seoul on October 28, followed by Osaka (Kansai)-Busan and Nara-Seoul in January.

Along with the suspension of routes, the airline will reduce its frequencies between Kansai and Seoul in November.

“We’ve taken the decision after judging the situation holistically, including the deteriorating South Korean economy and depreciation of the won,” a Peach official said.
