Air Busan to open first flight routes to China from March

Korea’s budget carrier Air Busan said yesterday that it will inaugurate passenger flight services to China for the first time in March.

The company - a subsidiary of Asiana Airlines, the country’s No. 2 flag carrier - said daily flights are planned between Korea’s largest port of Busan and Qingdao, a key industrial hub in northeastern China.

“Because there are only three weekly flights directly linking the two cities, many passengers have to transfer and use connecting flights from Incheon International Airport,” the airline said.

The new daily direct flights will make two-way air travel more convenient, which should benefit businesses and the tourism industry, the carrier said.
