Travel to Asia is ramping up and Australian airlines have been responding.
Qantas is starting up direct flights from Sydney to Seoul as the airline continues to respond to post-pandemic travel demand. South Korea has recently reopened to tourists, with visa-free travel for Australians easing the process for holidaymakers.
Jetstar will also be running three weekly flights from Sydney to Seoul, starting November 2.
Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said: “South Korea is Australia’s fourth-largest trading partner and Koreans see Sydney as one of the top tourism destinations.
“With expected strong business, premium leisure and low-cost travel demand on the route, we see an opportunity for both Qantas and Jetstar to fly on the route.”
Qantas is also adding new flights to Bangalore in India, with four return flights per week to be scheduled from September 14. Plus, Qantas is working with IndiGo, India’s premier domestic airlines, to offer travellers “improved one-stop access to more than 50 Indian cities”.
