“I am honored to sponsor the 17th HANMI Golf Tournament,” said Asiana Airlines Saipan Regional Office Manager Ahn Min Kyoung.  “Asiana Airlines has 83 aircraft, operating in 63 cities and 76 routes in 21 countries around the world. We hope you will travel comfortably and safely in one of 63 cities (except the US) you want.”
