Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 17 July 2009

Jin Air, a low-cost short-haul carrier established in 2008 by Korean Air, is to launch international flight operations on 29 October 2009.

The first international flights will be between Incheon-Bangkok and Incheon-Macau.

Daily flights on the Incheon-Bangkok route will depart Seoul/Incheon at 08:00 and arrive in Bangkok at 11:50 the same day.

 The return flight will depart Bangkok at 13:15 and return to Seoul/Incheon at 20:20 the same day.

Jin Air will operate four flights per week between Seoul/Incheon and Macau. Operating on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, the flights will depart Seoul/Incheon at 21:40 and arrive in Macau at 00:20 the next day.

 The return flights will depart Macau at 01:40 and return to Seoul/Incheon at 06:10 the same day.

 Reservations for both routes will be available at travel agencies from August and at Jin Air’s website, from 1 September.

After these inaugural routes, Jin Air plans to operate daily flights to Osaka, Japan and Wuhan, China from December, and will start serving Guam next January.

Light snacks will be provided during the flights, but passengers will have to pay for alcoholic beverages such as beer.

Save the Air

Starting from September, Jin Air which has just unveiled its new slogan “Save the Air”, will provide “No Baggage Green Coupons” to passengers traveling without checked-baggage.

 Passengers holding only carry-on baggage will be provided with 1,000 point coupons which can be used at a value of KRW 1,000 when flying with Jin Air.

To encourage passengers to take part in the environmental movement, the carrier will also start selling T-shirts with prints of the new slogan “Save the Air” sketched by celebrities. The T-shirts will be available on the airline’s website from September and all profits will be donated to environmental groups.

In addition, Jin Air will donate all profits earned through the Sony PSP inflight rental service to various environmental groups. The airline will also join in global green activities by officially registering at the UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme) National Committee for the Republic of Korea.

“For the past year, we have proved ourselves as a leading global premium low-cost carrier with global safety standards and quality service provided at a reasonable price,” said Jae-Kun Kim, CEO of Jin Air. “Our new international operation will be another chance for us to demonstrate the best of Jin Air for our customers, including our green initiatives as a part of social responsibility.”
