RoK airline to launch route to Nha Trang in December

Budget carrier Air Seoul Inc., announced on Tuesday that it will open a new route to Nha Trang coastal city of the south central province of Khanh Hoa in December as it diversifies its routes, reported the Yonhap news agency.

Air Seoul is wholly owned by the Republic of Korea (RoK)'s Asiana Airlines Inc. Starting December 18, Air Seoul plans to offer seven flights a week to Nha Trang as it strives to strengthen services on routes to Southeast Asia to offset declining demand on Japanese routes, the company said in a statement.

Since early July, RoK airlines have halted or reduced services on their Japanese routes, while expanding flights on non-Japanese ones after Japan implemented export restrictions of key materials to the RoK.
