Following Korean Air's move to increase flights in June, its counterpart Asiana announced its own plans to boost flights and capacity in an effort to facilitate the recover of international travel demand.

In a statement, the airline will resume routes previously suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Asiana will be operating at around 17% capacity – up from its current 8% rate of operation compared to before the majority of flight suspensions.

The airline will resume flights on June 1 to twelve destinations in China, while increasing the number of weekly flights to destinations in Southeast Asia such as Ho Chi Minh (three-times weekly to daily), Phnom Penh, and Manila (three-times to four-times weekly).

International flights from Busan and Seoul-Gimpo will remain suspended.

Among the routes set to re-commence will be to Singapore with a planned thrice-weekly service to start on June 1.
