South Korea's new KAIR Airlines to launch with A320s
Toulouse, March 16, 2017

South Korean start-up carrier KAIR Airlines has placed a firm order of eight A320ceo to launch its new low-cost operation.


Based in Cheongju in central South Korea, the airline is planning to focus primarily on services to international destinations in north-east Asia.



“We see enormous potential for the development of a low cost model linking central South Korea with destinations in China, Taiwan and Japan”, said Byung Ho Kang, KAIR Airlines’ representative director and chairman.


He added that the airline will “focus on point-to-point services at low fares” and that the single-aisle A320 will be “perfect for our business model and customers”.
