Air Seoul has launched a number of new routes in Asia-Pacific, offering flights between Incheon International Airport and Macau, Kota Kinabalu, Nagasaki, Yonago and Hiroshima. Operation of the new, direct services began between October 18 and 23 and will run on select days of the week.
The Seoul Incheon (ICN) to Macau (MFM) service will run on all days of the week, though its Tuesday and Friday flights will operate at a later time than flights during other days of the week.
