Manila-Jeju Island: Philippine Airlines linking to South Korea


There are currently more than 90,000 South Koreans in the Philippines (as of a 2011 population report recorded by South Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade), and there are more than 45,000 Filipinos residing in South Korea.

Philippine Airlines has filed an operational schedule for charter service between Manila and Jeju Island in South Korea, scheduled to fly twice a week beginning on April 6 using an A320 aircraft.

Jeju is a popular tourist destination in South Korea, and is known for its beach resorts and volcanic landscape of craters and cavelike lava tubes. Hallasan Mountain, a dormant volcano, features hiking trails, a crater lake at the 1,950-meter summit and nearby Gwaneumsa Temple.
