AirAsia Japan has announced its first international route will be from Tokyo to Seoul, Korea. The new route will launch on October 28, 2012, with one round-trip flight per day.
The Tokyo (Narita) – Seoul (Incheon) route will be operated using Airbus A320 aircraft. One-way fares start from 6,980 JPY ($90 USD) plus tax.
Commenting on the new route, AirAsia CEO Tony Fernandes said: “This is a great day for all of us, and an even greater day for the consumers & air travelers in Korea. With AirAsia’s low fare, everyone can now travel to more places more often. AirAsia Japan’s announcement of this international route today is a dream come true for us, and I am looking forward to see the Narita – Incheon flights begin operations. Congratulations to Kazuyuki and his team for making Japanese and Korean skies friendlier and more affordable.”
