South Korea shown T'way to Bangkok
Sirima Eamtako, Bangkok, October 14, 2011
 

SOUTH Korean budget carrier T’way Airlines will launch on October 14 its inaugural international service—once-daily Seoul-Bangkok flights—using an all-economy 189-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

 

According to T’way Airlines’ Thailand GSA, Buynow, the carrier’s first arrival flight is already fully booked, while the turnaround flight is 70-80 per cent occupied.

 

Originally established as Hansung Airlines in 2004, the carrier started domestic operations (Cheongju-Jeju) in August 2005, and subsequently creased operations in October 2008 due to budgetary constraints.

 

Hansung Airlines was re-launched as T’way Air in August last year, and launched domestic operations between Gimpo and Jeju a month later. It currently has a fleet of two B737-800 aircraft, and will be adding two more by year-end.

 

T’way Airlines will join a host of legacy and budget carriers operating between South Korea and Thailand, including Thai Airways International, Korean Air, Air Asiana, Jin Air, Jeju Air and Business Air.
