Qantas To Offer Seasonal Services To Korea

Qantas today announced it would operate a series of seasonal services between Australia and Korea from 28 December 2005 to 5 February 2006.

Qantas Executive General Manager John Borghetti said the services were being introduced to meet demand during the traditional New Year peak period from Korea.

"The market between Korea and Australia is growing. The number of Korean visitors travelling to Australia has increased by 10 per cent in the last 12 months and by 24 per cent over the past five months," Mr Borghetti said.

"These services will assist in further stimulating traffic between the two countries," he said.

The 18 return services between Brisbane and Seoul will operate on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday using two-class Boeing 767-300 aircraft. The services are timed to suit customers connecting to and from other Australian cities.

Qantas last operated services to Seoul in 1998.

Qantas will continue its codeshare arrangement on Asiana Airlines' daily services from Sydney to Seoul.

Testing the waters perhaps?

I would have thought Seoul to be a perfect destination for Australian Airlines, especially considering the honeymoon traffic between ICN and SYD / BNE / CNS.
