TOKYO, August 21 (Itar-Tass) - South Korea’s Asiana Airlines has decided to cancel flights between Seoul and Japan’s Fukushima after radioactive water leakage, Japanese mass media reported on Wednesday.
The company had to give up six charter flights between Seoul’s Incheon Airport and Fukushima. The flights were scheduled for August and September.
Sources at Asiana Airlines said the demand declined among South Korean citizens after July’s reports on the radioactive water leakage in the Pacific Ocean.
On Tuesday, August 20, Tokyo Electric Power said over 300 tons of the radioactive water had been leaked. The level of radioactive waste amounts to 80 million Bq per liter. Currently, specialists have started siphoning water to prevent leakage. In addition, employees of the nuclear power plant intend to study surrounding soil.
