Okay Airways starts first international route from Changsha
Okay Airways has commenced its second route to the Korean island of Jeju (CJU). On 16 April the airline began thrice-weekly flights on the 1,420-kilometre route from Changsha (CSX) using its 737-800s. According to Innovata / Diio Mi, the flights are currently scheduled to terminate at the end of May, and are the airline’s first international services from Changsha. Okay Airways already serves Jeju from Tianjin. Competition on the Changsha route is provided by China Southern Airlines’ twice-weekly flights. Last year Jeju International Airport handled just over 20 million passengers, around the same as Salt Lake City in the US or Dublin in Ireland.
