Asiana Airlines starts flights between Naha and Busan

November 15, 2013 Ryukyu Shimpo

South Korean carrier Asiana Airlines commenced flights between Naha and Busan on November 14. These new regular flights follow on from the service operating between Naha and Seoul. The new service will offer round-trip services on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday of each week.

The airline uses Airbus A320 Family aircraft fitted with 155 seats. The load factor of the flight from Busan to Naha on the first day was 53.5 percent, with 72.9 percent in the flight from Naha to Busan. The Okinawa branch of Asiana Airlines is aiming to achieve a load factor of 75 percent.

The opening flight ceremony was held at Naha Airport International Terminal building. Yoshiyuki Uehara, the head of the Okinawa Convention & Visitors Bureau, and Seijun Wakukawa, the head of the Department of Culture, Tourism and Sports of the Okinawa Prefectural Government took part.

Seok-je Kim, the head of Okinawa branch of Asiana Airlines, said, “Okinawa is the closest subtropical resort area to South Korea. I want many Okinawan people to take advantage of these flights because Busan is the second-largest city in Korea, and has quite a different culture to that of Seoul.”
