Business Air increases Phuket – South Korea flights

PHUKET: Bangkok-based airline Business Air has announced plans to increase flight frequency on its service connecting Phuket with Incheon, South Korea.

The extension to the carrier’s existing Phuket – Incheon route will make it easier for holidaymakers to travel between the two destinations during the high season for tourism.

Business Air already runs four weekly flights from Phuket to Incheon, but the airline is adding a fifth flight to its service.

The airline’s strategy is to focus only on big travel groups, approaching tour operators that have a large number of customers.

Business Air also plans to increase its Bangkok – Incheon flight service to seven times a week.

“We have had an average cabin factor as high as 90% during this year’s high season. We have served more than 60,000 passengers since we opened late last year. Still, more demand is coming,” said Anucha Tiwari, the airline’s Chief Executive.

“We move with a different strategy, as we know that many Koreans prefer to travel with tour companies,” he added.

Business Air will take delivery of its fourth aircraft early next year to serve higher market demand between Thailand and South Korea.
