Jeju Air to resume flights to Guam amid vaccination campaign



Jeju Air Co., South Korea’s largest low-cost carrier, said on Friday it would resume flights to Guam later this month as part of the country’s accelerated vaccination campaign.

Jeju Air plans to operate 38 flights on the Incheon-Guam route from Nov. 25 to Jan. 31 before starting scheduled flights, depending on the country’s vaccination and infection rates, the company said in a statement.

The low-cost airline suspended most international routes in March of last year following the COVID-19 outbreak here in January 2019.

Jeju Air resumed scheduled flights to Saipan in July as a precautionary measure to absorb demand for post-coronavirus travel.

Charter flights to Chiang Mai, Thailand are also available from Friday, but flights could be temporary, depending on demand from travel agencies, a company spokeswoman said.

International flights to five cities – Tokyo, Osaka, Weihai, Harbin and Manila – are available for business travelers and Koreans residing in the cities.

Jeju Air plans to expand other international routes to meet growing demand for outward travel and an increase in the number of people vaccinated in South Korea, adding that it plans to resume flights to Bangkok, as well as other major cities in Thailand, by the end of the year. (Yonhap)
