Wanna travel to South Korea? Want to get a cheaper alternative to fly to South Korea? Now you can with Silkair latest edition to its destination – Busan.
On 1st May, Silkair launched the first non-stop flight from Singapore Changi Airport to Busan Gimhae International Airport, in South Korea. Silkair is the only airline that flies to Busan on a regular basis, 4 times per week (departing from SG on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays & Sundays) with a flight time of 6 hours 30 minutes. The regional airline will use Boeing 737-800 aircraft for this route.
With the launch of Singapore-Busan route, passengers can enjoy Korean in-flight cuisine with popular dishes like Bibimbap, Beef Japchae, Chicken Bulgogi and Kimchi Fried Rice.
Personally, I think the Singapore-Busan route is a cheaper alternative to travel to South Korea if flying direct to Seoul Incheon with Singapore Airlines or Korean Air is pricey. A high-speed train ride from Busan to Seoul cost about S$60 per person only, even though it may be more troublesome, but should be able to save some money for an extra serving of Bibimbap!
Can’t wait for my chance to fly direct to Busan with Silkair in the near future!
