Korean low cost carrier operates its first service to Guam


Jin Air, a wholly-owned subsidiary of national carrier Korean Air, has this week started its inaugural services to Guam from Seoul’s Incheon International Airport.

Guam will become the low cost carrier’s second international service, after it launched its first international service to Bangkok late last year.

The new route to Guam’s Antonio B. Won Pat International Airport will be operated by a Boeing 737-800 capable of carrying 183 passengers in a one class configuration.

Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) have already welcomed the new services which it hopes will help bring tourists more choice.

“We’re excited about Jin Air opening international service to Guam,” said Ernie Galito, GVB Acting General Manager.

“It provides us with an additional carrier, nearly doubling our seat capacity from Korea. It gives consumers a choice between carriers when they’re booking a flight here.”

Currently Korean Air also operates at the AB Won Pat International Airport with services that include Seoul and Busan.
