SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore
Airlines, has launched non-stop flights between Singapore and
Busan, South Korea.
The route will be served four times per week on
Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, with Boeing 737-800
aircraft. The flight duration is roughly 6 hours and 30 minutes.
“The launch of Busan flights marks yet another
milestone for SilkAir, as it is the first South Korean city in our
network,” said Mr Foo. “We are pleased to be providing greater
connectivity for travellers to Korea, as well as for Koreans
travelling to Singapore, with connections to the many destinations
in the combined SilkAir and Singapore Airlines network.”
The launch of the Singapore-Busan route will see
the introduction of Korean in-flight cuisine to enable customers
to enjoy classic Korean flavours during their flight. Customers
can expect popular dishes such as Bibimbap (Korean mixed rice),
Beef Japchae (stir-fried glass noodles) and Chicken Bulgogi and
Kimchi Fried Rice.
