Jeju Air, nation’s biggest budget carrier with international connections, will increase its Jeju- Gimpo and Jeju-Busan services, as a new Boeing jetliner begins domestic route flights on Oct. 25. A spokesperson for the low-budget carrier expressed hope that this will help to attract more group tours to the island, including school excursions from the mainland. The number of seats available daily on the Jeju-Gimpo route will be 4,300, which is around a 27% increase on the number currently available, and 52% more seats will be available on Jeju-Busan flights. Jeju Air is now the third largest civilian airline, followed by Korean Air and Asiana Airlines. Internationally, the airline provides connections between Korea and Japan, and Korea and Thailand, with three lines- Incheon-Osaka, Incheon-Kitakyushu and Incheon-Bangkok. Its airfare is about 70% of that of the major airlines Korean Air and Asiana Airlines.
