South Korean airline Fly Gangwon has received a cargo transportation business licence from the South Korean Government’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MOLIT).
Founded in 2016, the low-cost domestic airline is based at Yangyang International Airport and currently flies to Seoul and Jeju City.
It currently operates two Boeing 737-800 passenger aircraft.
According to the Centre for Aviation (CAPA), Fly Gangwon received its first aircraft, an 186 seat Boeing 737-800, in Sep-2019.
The carrier received an AOC from the MOLIT in October 2019, allowing it to launch commercial operations in November 2019 with a Yangyang-Jeju service.
Air Cargo News has requested comment from Fly Gangwon on whether it will be investing in any freighters.
