Jeju Air officials have confirmed their launch of new daily direct service between Muan, South Korea and Guam in December.

Muan is a new destination option to visit and for Guam's tourism economy to be connected to Muan Airport which serves an area of more than 1.9 million residents in the Jeollanam-do province of South Korea, the A.B. Won Pat Guam International Airport Authority announced Wednesday.

Jeju Air is a valued partner with scheduled and charter services to 10 direct destinations, the Guam airport agency stated.

"We thank them for the continued partnership in developing our business and tourism industry with their services," stated GIAA Executive Manager Tom Ada.

“The new air services increases the airport’s revenue for Fiscal Year 2020. With seat capacity increases from our visitor markets in Japan and Korea, and the new service to Muan, we anticipate added revenue for the fiscal year, and even more cost savings to our airlines,” Ada said.

Jeju Air entered the Guam market in 2012. It has provided air link between Guam and South Korea and Japan.
