Scheduled flights to resume on New Chitose-Incheon route from July 17  

On June 21, Korean Air, the largest airline in South Korea officially announced that it will resume scheduled flights on the New Chitose-Incheon route from July 17. This will be the first time in two years and four months that scheduled international passenger flights will operate in and out of New Chitose Airport.
The decision was made in response to the declining number of new cases of COVID-19 in Japan and South Korea, and the fact that Japan will once again begin accepting overseas tourists. The airline will operate four flights per week, with one round-trip per day on Thursdays and Sundays. A Boeing 737 (173 seats) aircraft will be used.
Korean Air had been operating two round-trips per day on this route before the pandemic, but had suspended services since March 2020. Korean Air will consider increasing the number of flights in the future, based on trends in demand and the easing of entry restrictions in both countries.
