Posted: Updated:

Guam - A new carrier is coming to Guam.  Jin Air, a low-cost carrier and subsidiary of Korean Airlines, has received approval from the U.S. Department of Transportation to begin flights to the island.  Beginning in April, Jin Air will utilize a 737 aircraft with 156 seats and conduct daily flights from Incheon to Guam. 

Guam International Airport Authority Executive Manager Carlos Salas said, "We believe that their strategy is to pickup passengers who have lower budgets and can still fly on Jin Air and can still pay for hotel rooms and spend money all in all its good for Guam and we're looking forward to it."

Jin Air's inaugural flight is tentatively scheduled for April 19.  In the meantime, the airport is awaiting word from the USDOT on whether Continental Airlines' application for Guam-Haneda flights will be approved to begin in October.
