Peach Aviation, a low-cost carrier (LCC) based in Kansai Airport, announced that it will suspend three routes connecting Japan and Korea and reduce the number of flights. According to Peach, this is the first time a Japanese airline has revealed the suspension of a Korean route after the relationship between Korea and Japan has deteriorated.
The Sapporo (New Chitose) -Seoul (Incheon) route will be suspended from October 28, the Kanku-Busan route will be suspended from January 7, next year, and the Okinawa (Naha) -Seoul (Incheon) route will be suspended from January 28, next year. It will be temporarily suspended on February 22. The Kansai-Seoul (Incheon) route will be reduced from 4 round trips to 3 round trips a day from November 11 to December 8.
A spokesman for the company said that the number of passengers from South Korea is decreasing due to the cold economy and the weak won.
