Asiana Airlines’ Gwangju-Gimpo route may close

매각되는 아시아나항공적자노선 광주∼김포 폐지하나

Asiana Airlines Gwangju-Gimpo route may close

 

As Kumho Asiana Group decided to sell off its airline subsidiary, Asiana Airlines, the flight route connecting Gwangju and Gimpo may close down.

 

The airliner maintained the Gwangju-Gimpo route taking risks of running into deficits to convenience locals, however, the planned sale will make the lines closure inevitable.

 

Since the opening of the Honam KTX bullet train in April 2015, the number of Gwangju-Gimpo flight users decreased by 37.3%. Korean Air also stopped operating its line in March 2016 while Asiana kept flying.

 

At the time, Korean Air expected a yearly deficit of 4.6 billion won if the line stayed open.

 

As Asiana Airlines launched a task force to enforce asset sales, flight route reorganization and internal reform, the companys Gwangju-Gimpo route is expected to meet its end soon.
