Asiana resumes flights to Japan quake region

Asiana Airlines resumed flights between Incheon and Sendai, Japan, nearly six months after it suspended the route following the devastating earthquake in the northeastern part of Japan in March. Asiana will fly three times a week using its A320 aircraft.

The service resumed as Sendai Airport completed its restoration work. Asiana is the first international carrier to start the service again since the airport reopened.

“The Sendai route ranks as Asiana’s first international service,” said Asiana CEO Yoon Young-doo.

U.S.-based Continental Airlines and Taiwan-based Eva Airways will resume their flights to Sendai next month and Air China will follow suit in March. For passengers who arrived in Sendai on Sunday, a handful of performers presented a traditional dance from Miyagi Prefecture.
