Asiana Airlines Cancels Flights to Fukushima

(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) South Korea's Asiana Airlines will cancel four chartered flights between Seoul and Fukushima scheduled for October due to radiation fears from the nuclear plant there. The number of South Korean visitors to the Fukushima area is declining after Tokyo Electric Power Company's admission in July of contaminated water released into the ocean from its crippled Fukushima nuclear power complex, Yonhap news agency said. South Korea's second biggest airline said the weakening of the Japanese yen against the won is also reducing the number of Japanese traveling to South Korea.
