In an e-mailed reply to AUP, Royal Air said the launching of flights from Manila to Incheon is part of "expanding our horizon and business opportunities in this time of pandemic."

The new service, which marks another milestone for Royal Air, operates every Sunday on-board its Airbus A320-200 fleet. The Manila-Incheon sector departs at 3:00pm local time while the Incheon-Manila sector departs at 10:00pm local time.

The airline also said it plans to open more regional destinations for both cargo and passenger operations. Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand is already on Royal Air's radar.

Royal Air accepted the delivery of an Airbus A320-232 aircraft in November last year. The said aircraft, registered RP-C7936, was previously operated by Filipino carrier Pan Pacific Airlines. It currently operates a fleet of two Airbus A319s, two Airbus A320s, and three BAe Avro RJ100.
