Air Premia has announced plans to launch its first flight, a domestic route in South Korea, on August 11, 2021.
The new airline will commence operations from Seoul – Gimpo International Airport to the resort island of Jeju.
As previously reported, Air Premia was established on July 27, 2017 by the ex-president of Jeju Air , Kim Jong-Chul.
The carrier advertises itself as the “Hybrid Service Carrier”.
Announced in April 2019, the airline intended to launch long-range operations in 2020 and lease three Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners from Aircraft Lease Corporation (ALC), but announced and later agreed to buy five aircraft.
COVID-19 has delayed their long-range plans. The company is now planning routes to the United States and Australia later this year, pandemic permitting.
