Son Doo Sang, executive senior vice president, Eastar Jet said, “With Sabre’s extensive global network, we selected them as our partner to propel us beyond Asia. This is a strong testament of our deep relationship. Today, almost one-third of Korean travellers fly internationally on LCCs and we believe this partnership will enable us to continue to fuel our growth in international markets and continue to provide value as one of the fastest growing low-cost carriers in Korea.”

Rakesh Narayanan, vice president of Air Commerce, Sabre Travel Network Asia Pacific, said, “LCCs are revolutionizing the way people travel, for both short and long-haul flights. This trend is most prevalent in Northeast Asia, where LCCs currently account for approximately half of the market, and are expected to overtake full service airlines for the first time in the near future. In Korea, the first half of 2017 saw international flight passengers who took LCCs increase by 49.1%, whereas flag carriers saw a 3.2% decrease within the same timeframe. By offering rich airline content for our customers and agencies, we are confident of helping Eastar Jet grow into a global airline of choice.”
