Jin Air, another South Korean LCC, this one a subsidiary of Korean Air, has introduced two routes to China from its base at Jeju (CJU). On 30 September it began twice-weekly flights (Tuesdays and Saturdays) on the 1,225-kilometre route to Quanzhou (JJN), followed on 2 October by twice-weekly flights (Thursdays and Sundays) on the 1,635-kilometre route to Xi’an (XIY). Both routes will be operated by the airline’s 737-800s. Competition is only provided on the Quanzhou route by Xiamen Airlines’ thrice-weekly flights. These are Jin Air’s second and third routes to China from Jeju, as it has been operating flights to Shanghai since 2011.
