‘Daily sales of 70 million won’ Fly Gangwon suspension, what to do with reservation customers


Fly Gangwon could not withstand the financial difficulties and applied for corporate rehabilitation procedures along with a declaration to suspend operations. As the recent investment attraction went in vain, it finally raised the white flag after three years of operation.

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said in a press release, “We urge Fly Gangwon to thoroughly implement consumer protection and compensation.”
