Comments from President of ZIPAIR, Shingo Nishida
Due to the impact of the new coronavirus infection, we were forced to postpone the launch of our passenger flights, but we are finally able to welcome passengers on board. Although the COVID-19 impact continues, we will do our best to serve our passengers with a new option for travel between Tokyo and Seoul.
Since we had more time to prepare for the start of passenger flights than we had originally planned, we have been working hard to make sure that we are ready to welcome our customers, and we hope you will enjoy the journey with ZIPAIR.

Note: The flight schedule and airfares for the passenger service of Tokyo-Bangkok route will be announced as soon as they are confirmed.
