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, but at a later time on Tuesday and Friday compared with other days. The return MFM-ICN flight, however, will not operate on Tuesday and Friday, and will instead run at two times on Wednesday and Saturday.

Meanwhile, the ICN to Kota Kinabalu (BKI) service will operate at the same time daily. Of the three new Japan services, the Nagasaki (NGS) route will run on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday; the Yonago (YGJ) service will operate on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday; and the Hiroshima (HIJ) route will run on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
