Korea's airline industry saw the biggest improvement in passenger numbers in October since the coronavirus epidemic began early this year.
The improvement was mainly due to an increase in the number of domestic passengers, who went on trips during Chuseok or Korean Thanksgiving and Hangeul Day in early October.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said on Monday that 5.5 million passengers took domestic flights in October, up a whopping 48.8 percent from the previous month.
On-year, passenger numbers dropped 48 percent, the smallest decline since the start of the epidemic.
