Korea Domestic Airlines Schedules

Good day,

I will be in Seoul shortly and plan to do two days of hardcore domestic flying, sampling all the domestic airlines (in particular the smaller ones like Jeju Air, Jinair, Eastarjet, Tway and Air Busan). As most of their websites are in Korean only, could anybody speaking Korean be so kind and translate their schedules for me? That would be a tremendous help in working out possible routings.

Booking ahead is not really necessary here, is it? Usually, the prices remain more or less the same no matter when you book your seat or did anybody have a different experience?

Also, what Korean destination would merit a stay of half a day or some hours? Jeju? Busan?

Thanks for your help and ideas!

Sebastian

On KE and OZ, booking ahead isn't really necessary. However, if you book ahead on the low cost ones (EastarJet in particular) you are bound to find some great deals by booking in advance.

Spending a night in Busan in the Haeundae area could be fun. Jeju is worth it if you can get access to a rental car.


Here are the schedules:

I will do similar flying prior to the upcoming A.net Meeting at NRT and HND.
I have positioned myself into "Incheon Airport Hotel June" located within walking distance of Unseo Station of Airport Express AREX, offering cheap local trains to both ICN and GMP (and free hotel transfer to ICN). As I will arrive/depart (IST and NRT) at/from ICN, I found this location superior over the Airport Hotel at Gimpo.

Quoting airevents (Thread starter):
Also, what Korean destination would merit a stay of half a day or some hours? Jeju?

Jeju is said to be a good destination - and very popular, hence the enormous number of daily flights & seats.

Quoting airevents (Thread starter):
Booking ahead is not really necessary here, is it?

Some flights on Eastar Jetbetween GMP and CJU were already sold out almost 3 months in advance.

BTW, booking domestic flights using a European Credit Card can be a hassle on some websites.
My experiences are as follows:

- No problems on EastarJet. Easy and quick online purchase.

- KE makes much better fare quotes on their own website (often less than half the fare actually bookable on BCD-travel-direct), but you have to enroll in their Skypass FF-program to make bookings (actually even to get a final quote). After that, I was able to book one flight without problems in 2010, but in 2011 their data transfer of credit card information went bust, making purchases with my german Credit Cards (multiple) impossible. One of my Credit Card issuers disclosed some more details to me on in which way data is twisted.
Call their european CallCenter (Freecall to Ireland) to make domestic bookings; payments then only are due at the airport prior to check-in.

- OZ: Seems to be problematic on their own website, too, but the identical fare quotes are available through the usual bunch of brokers here in Germany, like Expedia or BCD-travel-direct.

Air Busan: IIRC, I had some problems with their website. Finally I booked them under a OZ-flight number between CJU and PUS using BCD-Travel again for 53 €..

Jinair, T'way and Jeju Air's websites have been in Korean language only - at least as long as you are departing from South Korea - so, no bookings by me on these carriers.

One other word to the wise: Print displayed booking confirmations (I always print to PDF-file), as not always an offered confirmation Mail does arrive !

Quoting airevents (Thread starter):
Usually, the prices remain more or less the same no matter when you book your seat or did anybody have a different experience?

Fares on EastarJet do go up.

______________________

Some destinations are difficult to make roundtrips to that make for connections of about 1.5-2 hours, even when combining OZ and KE.
KWJ during weekdays can be challenging. Consider to fly GMP - KWJ - CJU - ??? - GMP on a weekend.

One other idea is to fly into USN, then take bus & train to PUS (search for "Gimhae Airport" on Google maps) and fly home from there (or v/v).
Also a combination of Ulsan (USN) and Pohang (KPO) could be done, but flights are rare to KPO.
Most other airports (in the south of South Korea) appear to be too far away from each other (expressed in travel time, not distance) to warrant A-B / C-A routings.

Any other experience of my intensive flight searches you might look for, don't hesitate to ask.

Indeed, there are problems with alternative browsers such as Opera or Firefox on many South Korean airline's websites. Also KE mandates to use IE.
