Asiana Airlines will re-enter the Hawaii market when it begins charter service between Incheon, South Korea, and Honolulu in September.
The carrier announced today that it will offer twice weekly service from Sept. 18 to Dec. 8. The planes, which will fly on Thursdays and Sundays, will hold 269 passengers.
“The new flights to Hawaii represent the great interest by Asiana Airlines in Hawaii,” said Seok-Won Song, general manager of Asiana Airlines’ international routes and sales division. “We will work closely with the Hawaii Tourism Authority and Hawaii Tourism Korea, as well as participating agents, to implement various public relations and marketing programs to aggressively promote new charter flights.”
