SilkAir to begin Singpore-Busan flights May 1
SilkAir will officially begin regular flight service from Busan to Singapore on May 1, months after winning the rights last August.
The flights will now fly four times weekly on the Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft, which comes with Business and Economy Class cabins and seats 156.
SilkAir is scheduled to fly to Busan-Singapore on Tuesday at 8 a.m., and Thursday Saturday and Sunday at 8:30 a.m. with a 2:15 p.m. arrival time at Changi Airport.
Singapore to Busan flights will depart on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 11:15 p.m. and arrive at 8 a.m. the next day in Gimhae.
More than 230,000 Singaporeans visited Korea last year according to Korean Tourism Organization statistics.
The Singapore Airlines’ subsidiary, which was scheduled to begin service in December of 2018, had previously decided against flying the route last year due to the lack of preferred slots at Gimhae Airport.
