On September 27, three low-cost carriers (LCCs) in South Korea reduced their Central-Seoul and Central-Busan flights from September to 30 flights a week. The total number of flights connecting Central and South Korea will be 66 flights a week, 10 less than June 1st. The Chubu Airport Company (Tokoname City, Aichi Prefecture) believes that the effects of worsening relations between Japan and Korea have begun to appear in Chubu.
According to the September plan for Chubu Airport's route and number of flights, Jeju Air has reduced its Seoul flights to 2 flights a week from the 25th of this month to 14 flights a week. Air Busan will reduce Busan flights from September 1 to 4 flights a week, 4 flights a week. Tway Airlines will reduce Seoul flights to 13 flights a week, starting on the 4th, but some may not operate.
On September 20, Chubu Airport plans to open a second terminal for LCCs, including these three companies, and is closely monitoring the future trends of LCCs.
