- Air Seoul, a new LCC from Asiana Airlines, has begun operating international services from Seoul Incheon (ICN). On 7 October the carrier began serving Takamatsu (TAK) in Japan with thrice-weekly flights using an A321. The following day service was added to Shizuoka (FSZ) in Japan and Siem Reap (REP) in Cambodia. The new airline currently operates just a single A321 in its own colours, but two more aircraft are expected to be added to the fleet before the end of the month as further new destinations, primarily in Japan, will be added to the airline’s network. Air Seoul launched domestic flights between Seoul Gimpo and Jeju back in July with an A321 borrowed from its parent company and using Asiana’s OZ code. Air Seoul’s IATA code of RS is also currently used by Sky Regional Airlines of Canada, which operates services on behalf of Air Canada under the Air Canada Express banner.
