Korean Air to Run Narita-Guam flights

korean air

Korean Air, the nation’s leading carrier, will make charter flights from Narita, Japan, to Guam, during Japan’s silver holiday week, which starts today, the company said yesterday.

It is the nation’s first carrier to fly passenger planes to and from a non-Korean land.

The agreement allowing a chartered plane to fly from either Korea or Japan to a third country was made between the two countries in June during a bilateral aviation summit in Tokyo.

Korean Air’s Airbus A300-600 airplane with 276 seats is slated to make three round trips – today, Sunday and Tuesday.

“This is an opportunity for us to increase demand,” said a Korean Air official.

Asiana Airlines will also make charter flights from Narita to Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands on the same dates as Korean Air.
