The airliner is scheduled to carry out two flights per week, starting on Thursday and Sunday from Haikou. The year will see a total of 105 flights.

Besides the flight between Haikou and Seoul, Hainan has three other direct flights with ROK, linking Sanya with Seoul, Busan and Taegu.

ROK is Hainan's second-largest source of inbound tourists. More than 91,000 overnight tourists from ROK visited Hainan last year, up 42.8 percent year-on-year.
