Earlier in July, Korean Air announced that it will stop operating flights between Busan and Sapporo from the 3rd of next month in consideration of the deterioration of Korea-Japan relations and the demand for air.
In just over a month, we have taken additional measures to drastically reduce our flights to Japan.
A Korean Air official said, "The supply adjustment is due to the decrease in demand for travel in Japan that continues after mid-July."
As the demand for passengers on Japanese routes has declined in the wake of Japan's export restrictions, the airlines have decided to reduce Japan's skyways.
To date, all eight national airlines (Korean Air, Asiana Airlines, Jeju Air, Jin Air, T-way Airlines, Star Air, Air Busan, and Air Seoul) have decided to cut routes to Japan.
More than 60 Japanese routes are included in the reduction.
