Jeju Air grows Busan network with three new routes

This fake baggage carousel was created to promote Jeju Air’s three new routes from Busan starting on 15 December. This brings to 11 the number of destinations the LCC serves non-stop from the South Korean airport where it now accounts for 14% of seat capacity.

  • Jeju Air has added three new destinations from Busan (PUS). On 15 December the South Korean LCC began daily flights on the 1,036-kilometre route to Tokyo Narita (NRT) which is already served twice-daily by Air Busan, Japan Airlines and Korean Air. The same day Jeju Air also began four times weekly flights on the 2,786-kilometre route to Saipan (SPN) which is already flown twice-weekly by Asiana Airlines. Then on 16 December Jeju Air began twice-weekly flights to Phuket (HKT) in Thailand. This 4,329-kilometre route is not served by any other carrier. All routes will be flown by the airline’s 737-800s of which it now has 26, the most recent of which joined the fleet in early December. The last eight -800s the airline has acquired have all been former Ryanair aircraft. At Busan, Jeju Air now accounts for 14% of seat capacity, ranking it third behind Korean Air (24%) and Air Busan (35%).
