Hi all, I am trying to look for tickets going to Pusan (PUS) in South Korea and my, it's a pain.

First of all, very few airlines fly direct to Pusan from outside the country. The timing of that flight doesn't really work very well -- I often have to stay in the airport for half a day, and it seems like the service is mostly a few times a week, not daily. Most of the flights require a stop in Seoul, which is ok, but the vast majority of them requires me to go from ICN to GMP to get on the second leg. I think KE is the only one that flies from ICN to PUS. It all seems rather silly to me, and I am wondering if I should just take the train down instead...

Have you looked at Northwest via Tokyo? Daily service from both Hong Kong and Busan (I wish the spellings had not changed).

I think you may be better off taking the train. Most Koreans take either bus/train or drive to Seoul rather than fly direct to secondary cities in Korea. I would recommend the train. There are express and super express trains serving the country.

Hope it helps...

Hmmm, how come NW didn't show up in the Skyteam schedules page?

Weird...

Thanks though! It might be my most direct option.
