Hi Air Co., Ltd(하이에어), operating as Hi Air, is a regional airline in South Korea that was founded in 2017 and began operations in December 2019. The airline's first route started was between Ulsan and Seoul.[1] In June 2020 it purchased two ATR 72-500 aircraft from ATR in order to expand its network with five new routes, despite the global slump in air travel caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.[2]
