Four Additional Flights between Gimpo and Haneda

Posted June. 16, 2005 03:04,   


South Korea and Japan have decided to increase Gimpo-Haneda flights from four to eight per day starting in August, according to a diplomatic source on June 15.

In the summit meeting scheduled in Seoul on June 20, it is known that South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun and Japanese Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi will officially agree on the expansion as a way to boost the private exchanges between the two nations.

Considering that there has been a rapid increase of passengers of the Gimpo-Haneda flights due to the Korean Wave, Japan has decided to reduce the pre-allotted number of government flights’ take-off and landing and increase the number of chartered flights instead.
