New destination in South Korea opens up for Australians

Australian travellers have a new - and affordable way - to fly to South Korea.

AirAsia X today restarted direct services from Kuala Lumpur to Busan (above) with connections from Australia and New Zealand to one of the key Korean tourism destinations.

And fares from Australia to Busan start from $372.

Australians can fly from Sydney, Melbourne and Perth to Busan via Kuala Lumpur on AirAsia X.

The inaugural flight departed from Kuala Lumpur International Airport yesterday, landing at Gimhae International Airport.

Busan is the airline’s 15th destination and the second in South Korea, with three times a week flights to/from Kuala Lumpur.

“Australians and New Zealanders love South Korea and Koreans love Australia and also New Zealand, which they can now fly to at great value fares connecting via our main hub in Kuala Lumpur," says AirAsia X Malaysia CEO Benyamin Ismail.

“We are excited to restart this historically very popular route and proud to be the only airline in Malaysia operating direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to Busan, a city of many tourism drawcards.

“Together with our existing route to Seoul, this further strengthens our foothold in South Korea and increases our overall capacity to North Asia - one of our fastest growing markets. We will continue to look for expansion opportunities in the future and work with BTO to promote the destination globally and invigorate the tourism industry in Busan.”

Fares from Sydney/Melbourne/Perth to Busan are on sale now from $372, inclusive of airport taxes, fuel surcharges and any other applicable charges. The boking period for that fare is from now until February 19 for a travel period between February 3 and October 28.
