The 2-member delegation led by president of Asiana Airlines Changchun Branch visited Changchun Foreign Affairs Office (CCFAO) on July 16, 2020. Duan Huaxu, Deputy Director General of CCFAO, met and had talks with the delegation.  


Asiana Airlines is one of the two major famous airlines in ROK, which started providing regular chartered flights from Seoul to Changchun in June 1996, and opened the route from Seoul to Changchun in March 1998. After the outbreak of the epidemic, each and every foreign airline could only keep one route and no more than one flight a week to China as required by the State Administration of Civil Aviation from March 12 this year. Asiana Airlines’ Seoul to Changchun was then adjusted to a round-trip flight on every Tuesday. 


“Over the past 20 years, Asiana Airlines has provided convenient conditions for the economic, trade and cultural as well as people-to-people exchanges between China and ROK,” said Duan Huaxu, Deputy Director General of CCFAO, adding, “We two sides have maintained close contacts. It is hoped that your new president of Asiana Airlines Changchun Branch will help continue strengthening our friendship. CCFAO will provide high-quality services for Asiana Airlines and actively coordinate with relevant departments of Asiana Airlines after the epidemic.” 


“I would like to express my gratitude to your office for your great support for Asiana Airlines,” said the president of Asiana Airlines Changchun Branch, adding, “In addition to the route from Seoul to Changchun, Seoul-Nanjing route was also resumed. As the prevention and control gets more effective, more international flights from ROK to different places in China will be resumed accordingly. To reduce the impact of the epidemic, we’ve submitted the application for an extra flight in a week from Seoul to Changchun to Jilin Provincial Headquarters for Epidemic Prevention and Control. We hope your office will help coordinate with your government and the headquarters at provincial and municipal levels to issue a letter of confirmation on the capability of epidemic prevention and control.” 


During the talks, the two sides also exchanged views on strengthening the economic, trade and non-governmental exchanges between Changchun and ROK after the China (Changchun)-ROK International Cooperation Demonstration Zone was founded.
