Chinese airlines normalize flights to S. Korea as MERS subsides

Chinese airlines have begun normalizing their flights to South Korea, according to state-run newspapers on Monday, as the country appears to near a formal end to its MERS outbreak.

Since South Korea reported its first case of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome on May 20, Chinese airlines have cut flights to Seoul and other cities as travelers canceled trips. No new cases have been reported in South Korea since July 4.

According to a report by the Beijing-based Jinghua newspaper, budget carrier Spring Airlines has added three flights per week between the northeastern city of Harbin and South Korea's southern island of Jeju.

Spring Airlines also plans to double the number of flights to four per week between the northern city of Tianjin and Jeju starting this week, the report said.

Other carriers, including Air China, China Southern Airlines and China Eastern Airlines, also plan to normalize their flights to South Korea, according to Chinese media reports.

The MERS outbreak in South Korea took a heavy toll on the country's tourism industry with more than 120,000 foreigners, mostly Chinese, canceling planned trips to South Korea. (Yonhap)

Incheon airport gets poor rating from local users

EOUL/SEJONG, Sept. 8 (Yonhap) -- Incheon International Airport, one of the most highly rated air terminals in the world, has received a poor rating from local users for its expensive restaurants and overland traffic infrastructure, a report showed Tuesday.

Incheon International Airport ranked last among the country's four major international airports checked for the 2014 aviation sector service evaluation, according to the report that the transportation ministry provided to Rep. Byun Jae-il ahead of the annual parliamentary audit of the government.

The lawmaker's office said that Incheon International Airport scored an average of 76.93 points among the nine categories checked, way below Gimpo International Airport in western Seoul, which got 96.37 points.

Jeju International Airport, on the southernmost resort island of Jeju, came in second with 88.80 points, with Gimhae International Airport in the second-largest city of Busan trailing at 85.72.

Incheon International Airport, one of the largest and busiest airports in Northeast Asia, is located 48 kilometers west of Seoul.

"Incheon's score was mostly affected by high food prices at the airport," the office said. "The airport got low marks in terms of accessibility from major urban hubs, expensive parking fees and courteousness of employees."

The low score comes as a surprise because Incheon International Airport, the main gateway to South Korea, has been rated as one of the best airports in the world by Airports Council International (ACI) as well as being viewed as one of the world's finest transit hubs by Skytrax since 2005.

ACI is the only global trade representative of the world's airports, while Skytrax provides consultancy on airlines and airports as well as conducting customer reviews.

Rep. Byun of the main opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy pointed out that the practice of engaging in competitive bidding when renting out its shopping spaces and facilities has led to record profits for the airport authority, but such gains have not translated into better service for local users.

"With users' complaints growing, there is a need to rethink the airport's operating process," the lawmaker argued.

People complaining about expensive food at an airport is a joke.

There are currently (if I'm not mistaken) no posts dealing with Korean airports outside of Seoul. And a big development was just announced today :



S. Korea to build 2nd airport on Jeju Island to handle rising traffic

2015/11/10 09:25


SEJONG, Nov. 10 (Yonhap) -- South Korea will build a second airport on the country's southernmost resort island of Jeju to better handle a spike in passenger traffic, the government said Tuesday.

The growing popularity of Jeju Island off South Korea's southern coast and a sharp surge in demand for low cost carrier flights has made it imperative to increase air traffic capacity on Jeju, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said.

The new, one-runway airport will cost 4.1 trillion won (US$3.54 billion) and will be located on the southern side of Jeju near the city of Seogwipo.

The island is currently served only by Jeju International Airport located on its northern shores, but its infrastructure will not be able to handle the expected rise in flights down the road.

In 2005, some 11.35 million people used the airport, with this number rising to 15.72 million in 2010 and reaching 23.2 million last year. The ministry estimated traffic will hit 28.3 million people by 2018 and soar to 32.11 million in 2020.

The ministry had weighed the option of greatly expanding the current airport, closing Jeju International and building a completely new airport with two runways, or building a second airport at a separate location.

"Taking into account the cost, impact on the environment and public opinion, the third option was accepted after extensive reviews," the ministry said. "Expanding the existing airport would cost 9.4 trillion won and pose environment challenges due to the need to reclaim land from the sea, while closing it down entirely is opposed by residents of Jeju City."

The ministry added that the new airport will not impede safe operations at Jeju International and weather conditions at the site of construction have been deemed favorable for flights. It said building an airport in the sparsely populated region of the island will have relatively less fallout in terms of damaging the eco-system and save the government money in terms of compensating existing residents.

"Overall, compared to other candidate sites, Shinsan-ri offers many advantages," the ministry said.

With the decision made, preliminary feasibility studies on the plan will kickoff within the year, with the design to be drawn up as soon as possible. The ministry said if all goes according to plan, the new airport should be operational by 2025, when passenger traffic to the island could hit 39.39 million.

So, I don't know know what we should do regarding threads. There isn't too much going on for non-Seoul airports. So it might not be justified to create a dead thread for each individual airport, especially an airport that is due for completion 10 years from now. I'd recommand turning this "Seoul-based airport" into a "Korean airport" thread. Even though, the vast majority of new posts would be about Incheon I'd guess.

Heuksan Airport and Ulleung Airport construction

As mentioned in a previous post, I'll talk about non-Seoul airports as well on this thread, because I don't want to end up creating ten dead threads about tiny Korean airports . So please bear with me.

New airports to open in the islands of Ulleung (Northeast) and Heuksan (Southwest).

These small airports are scheduled to open in 2021 and 2020, respecively. These islands had touristic potential, but could only be reached by ship until now, limiting their potential.

Construction should begin in 2017.


http://blog.daum.net/_blog/BlogTypeV...enu=recenttext

At both airports, runways will be 1200m long and 30m wide, and only allow planes which carry under 50 passengers.

These small commercial airports are pretty much a first in Korea, which means that the current Airlines have almost no planes small enough to operate flights to these new airports :
Expect some leasing or purchase of ATR/Embraer/Beechcraft/Bombardier aircrafts by Korean airlines in the future to address this need.

In related news regarding small airports, Baegnyeong Island might also get aa small airport after a feasibility test was passed recently. It would not start construction until at least 2020.


http://blog.ohmynews.com/byungmink/327754

The island is the Northwesternmost point in the Republic of Korea. Its land and/or maritime borders have been challenged by the DPRK, and its isolation has made it a difficult place to reach (and protect), while it's only a couple of kilometers away from North Korea. So, unsurprisingly, this airport would have major military implications.
