“By introducing low fares to Seoul, we expect that South Korea will be a country that jumps to the top of many Australian traveller’s bucket lists,”Gareth Evans, Jetstar Group CEO
I’ve transited Incheon airport a couple of times and would love to actually visit the craziness the looks like Korea. But I don’t think I will be doing a 10-hour stint on Jetstar in Economy.
Cheapest fares I could find for December 2019 are around $1,000 return for a basic economy fare, and closer to $2,650 in Business.
The last time Qantas Group planes flew to Seoul was back in February 1998.
