Muan Int’l Airport sees over 700 thousand travelers

무안국제공항 올해 이용객 70만명 돌파…

 

The Korea Airports Corporation, KAC, Muan Headquarters said Muan International Airport has so far hosted over 700,000 passengers this year.

 

A total of 720,000 people traveled through Muan Airport between January and August and the number increased by 83.2% compared to the same period last year.

 

Also, this is the first time for Muan Airport to pass the mark since it opened. The number of domestic flight passengers rose 2.9 percent to 170,000 travelers during the January-August period and international flight travelers jumped 141.7 percent to 550,000 passengers thanks to the growing pursuit of work-life balance and expanded flight routes.

 

Its international routes to Japan lost passengers due to Tokyos trade restrictions on South Korea; however, those traveling to Vietnam, Mongolia and Russia increased, resulting in an overall jump in passenger numbers.

 

Muan International Airport currently provides services to 10 cities in 6 different countries.

 

An official from Muan County said, Jeollanamdo is set to launch a new route between Muan and Shanya, China and other Southeast Asian cities with the aim to reach 1 million passengers by the end of this year
