Asiana Airlines Banned from Flying to Saipan

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation ordered Asiana Airlines to cancel all flights between Saipan and Incheon as part of punitive measures for a safety violation.

In April, an Asiana passenger jet continued flying for four hours after a warning signal telling pilots that something was wrong with the engine.

The flight ban will begin Oct. 14 and last until Oct. 20. / Jul. 14, 2014 11:21 KST
