Air Seoul Guam

Air Seoul commenced flights to Guam on 13 September. Seen celebrating the new A321-operated service from Seoul Incheon along with the crew, Miss World Guam 2016 Phoebe Denight Palisoc, and Miss Earth Guam Emma Mae Sheedy, are Ryu Kwang-Hee, President and CEO of Air Seoul and Ray Tenorio, Lieutenant Governor of Guam.

The day before the inauguration of flights to Guam, Air Seoul commenced operations to Osaka Kansai where Ryu Kwang-Hee, President and CEO of Air Seoul also spoke. Once Kwang-Hee’s speech was complete, a ribbon cutting ceremony took place to officially open the new route. Air Seoul becomes the eighth carrier to link Seoul Incheon to Osaka Kansai.

  • Air Seoul expanded its route offering this week by introducing Osaka Kansai (KIX) and Guam (GUM) to its Seoul Incheon (ICN) network. The former, which began on 12 September, will be flown by Air Seoul twice-daily, with it becoming the eighth carrier to link the 859-kilometre airport pair, with Jeju Airlines (31 weekly flights), Peach Aviation (28), Asiana Airlines (25), Korean Air (21), Eastar Jet (17), t’way air (17) and Jin Air (14) already serving the airport pair. The following day services to Guam were inaugurated. The 3,224-kilometre link will be flown by Air Seoul six times weekly according to OAG schedules, with it joining Jeju Airlines (21 weekly flights), Korean Air (14), Jin Air (7) and t’way air (7) on the sector. “To provide diversity to the customers, we have decided to launch a new route between Incheon and Guam because Guam is the most popular destination for Koreans,” stated Air Seoul President and CEO Ryu Kwang-hee at the launch. Both routes launched this week will be flown by Air Seoul on its fleet of A321s. As a result of Guam and Kansai becoming Air Seoul destinations, it now means that the carrier offers 12 routes from Incheon, with Hong Kong and Tokyo Narita the next planned destinations to join its network, with both expected to launch on 31 October.
