Jeju Air to revive Jeju-Fukuoka route in July file -

South Korea’s biggest budget carrier Jeju Air Co. revived a direct route between Korea’s Jeju Island and Fukuoka, Japan that it shut down four years ago, amid growing travel demand for the two vacation hotspots. 

The airline said Monday the new route would be launched on July 2 and operate three days a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday). 

On Tuesdays, the flight would take off at 4:35 p.m. from Jeju International Airport and land at Fukuoka Airport at 5:50 p.m. The return flight departs Fukuoka at 12:55 p.m. and arrives at Jeju Island at 2:35 p.m. 

On Thursdays and Saturdays, the flight will leave Jeju at 4:05 p.m. and arrive at Fukuoka at 5:30 p.m. The return flight takes off at 12:45 p.m. and arrives at Jeju at 2:35 p.m. (Thursday) or 2:05 p.m. (Saturday). 

The southern resort island of Jeju is a top travel destination popular among Koreans and foreigners alike. About 15 million tourists flock to the island every year, drawn by its natural wonders and beautiful beaches. 

Fukuoka is the sixth-largest city in Japan and the most populous city on the island of Kyushu. It is a gateway to other popular locations like Oita and Kumamoto and is famous for its hot spring resorts in Beppu and Yufuin.
