Just in time for Christmas, an airline has opened a new flight service from Korea which will welcome more than a hundred visitors daily to the island.
Almost 200 visitors coming from South Korea were greeted with music, leis, and goody bags as they walked out of the arrival gate at the Guam International Airport.
Starting today, Dec. 24, to March 7, 2020, the low-cost airline Jeju Air will have a daily service from Muan, a new gateway from South Korea.
This new service will accommodate 189 passengers daily — a great addition to the island’s Korean visitor arrival statistics. Just last month, Guam welcomed more than 62,000 people from South Korea.
According to Robert “Bobby” Alvarez, the vice president of the Guam Visitors Bureau, this flight will be beneficial to Guam’s tourism industry.
“This is an inaugural flight that our staff and our team have been working on to bring forth to Guam. We’re really excited about the numbers. This is going to be an addition to our overall arrivals, so this is really good news and a positive movement for Guam,” Alvarez said.
Alvarez adds that although this new flight service is only for the winter season, he hopes that in the future, it will expand to be operational throughout the whole year.
