After being on the epicenters of the COVID-19 outbreak, South Korean carriers have begun the gradual process to resume domestic flights.
While international flight resumptions are pending due to concerns over travel restrictions, Korean Air will resume around 15 domestic routes by the end of May. Among these routes include flights from Seoul-Gimpo to Sacheon and Yeosu, along with flights to the resort destination of Jeju.
Korean Air's budget subsidiary Jin Air will be increasing services on the Seoul-Jeju route from four flights per day to six.
Similar to Korean Air, South Korea's largest budget airline Jeju Air will launch daily flights from Seoul-Gimpo to both Sacheon and Yeosu starting April 29.
Air Busan – Asiana's low cost subsidiary - said Tuesday that it will resume services between Ulsan-Gimpo and Ulsan-Jeju routes on April 25, 55 days after it suspended the operation on March 1. “We will reopen the services after thorough sterilization measures and ensuring distance in seats,” an official from the company said.
Air Busan will also add two daily services between Seoul and Jeju, up to five daily from three.
T'way has also announced it will launch four-times daily flights between Gimpo and Busan.
