Asiana to open Incheon-Wuxi route as early as next year

Asiana Airlines Inc., Korea's second largest carrier, said Tuesday it plans to launch direct flights linking Incheon and the southeastern Chinese city of Wuxi as early as next year.

Asiana Airlines president Yoon Young-doo signed a memorandum of understanding with Wuxi Mayor Zhu Kejiang in Seoul earlier Tuesday on opening the new route, Asiana said, without giving a specific time frame for the new service.

Wuxi and nearby Suzhou in southern Jiangsu Province are home to about 40,000 Koreans and 1,500 South Korean companies, including Samsung Electronics Co., according to Asiana.

Currently, Asiana Airlines flies to and from Beijing, Shanghai and 19 other major destinations in China, with 207 flights a week. (Yonhap)
