SEOUL, July 15 (Yonhap) -- Air Seoul, a new low-cost carrier under Asiana Airlines, said Friday it plans to launch flight services to four Japanese cities in October.

The budget carrier is set to take over two routes that connect Incheon to Shizuoka and Takamatsu, respectively, from its parent carrier while flying to and from Nagasaki and Yamaguchi Ube in early October.

Air Seoul also said it is set to take over some of Asiana Airlines' flight services to Southeast Asian destinations.

The budget carrier, a wholly owned unit of Asiana Airlines, is set to lease three 195-seat Airbus A321-200s from Asiana Airlines, South Korea's second-largest airline.

Air Seoul has begun four daily flights connecting Seoul to the country's southern resort island of Jeju soon after winning the government's final approval for operations earlier this month.

Air Seoul is the second airline subsidiary of Asiana Airlines, which already operates Air Busan.
