Korean Air won't resume flights to several Japanese cities until late July. The flagship carrier said Wednesday it would continue to suspend its routes to Fukuoka, Kagoshima, Niigata, Okayama, Okinawa and Sapporo.
After Japan barred entry to Korean nationals in March last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Korean Air suspended all flights to Japan except on major routes from Incheon to Tokyo and Osaka. It then resumed a weekly flight between Incheon and Nagoya last November.
Airlines are gradually resuming international flights as vaccination picks up across the globe, but the island country has seen a spate of fresh infections, making it harder to resume flights there.
