Jetstar to fly daily from Australia to Seoul

Following strong demand for its existing flights, Jetstar has today announced it will launch a fourth weekly return service between Sydney and Seoul from February next year*.

Jetstar started flying between Sydney and the South Korean capital in November 2022 and currently operates three return flights a week, carrying more than 60,000 customers a year between the two destinations.

The fourth weekly return service between Sydney and Seoul will begin from 5 February 2024, adding another 30,000 low fares to the popular route every year.

Last week the low-cost carrier also announced three new return flights every week between Brisbane and Seoul starting on 1 February 2024.

The flying boost will see Jetstar operate a daily flight between Australia and Seoul —Sydney or Brisbane — from next February, in total creating more than 240,000 seats across the two routes.

Jetstar’s Chief Customer Officer, Alan McIntyre, said demand has been strong in both directions.

“Our Australian customers have fallen in love with Seoul’s mix of skyscrapers, vibrant nightlife, pop culture, rich history and incredible food,” Mr McIntyre said.

“From February next year we’ll offer a total of seven return flights a week between Sydney, Brisbane and Seoul, across every day of the week, creating more than 240,000 seats in both directions.

“Having low-cost fares available everyday means thousands more Australians and South Korean travellers will be able to take the holiday of a lifetime.

“We thank the New South Wales and Queensland Governments, Destination NSW and Brisbane Airport for their support of the South Korean routes.”

To celebrate the 30,000 extra seats between Sydney and Seoul (Incheon), Jetstar is offering fares from $359^ one-way for selected travel dates from February to June 2024 on the Deals page jetstar.com.

Customers can also fly one-way from Brisbane to Seoul (Incheon) from just $409^ for selected travel dates in 2024.
