Budget airlines have applied to resume international flights after the government said it will seek to open a severely limited travel bubble with other Asian countries.
T'way Air has applied for authorization to resume flights to the remote U.S. outposts of Guam and Saipan next month.
Air Seoul recently obtained permission to resume flights to Hong Kong and Japan and applied for authorization to fly to Guam and Vietnam.
Air Busan applied to resume flights to Guam, while Jeju Air already started to fly to Saipan this week.
Carriers plan to offer one flight a week for now but could increase them if demand rises. One airline industry insider said, "Although no agreements have been reached about the travel bubble, we believe international flights will gradually resume."
