Vladivostok Airport develops its cooperation with Air Busan
South Korea's Air Busan representatives have visited Vladivostok International Airport JSC today. During the meeting the parties have discussed the issue on organization of direct air traffic from Busan to Vladivostok
Air Busan considers the possibility of opening a new route to Vladivostok in 2013. The Carrier's interest in the cooperation with Vladivostok International Airport JSC is caused by the results of work within the framework of the “Open Skies” project focused also on the commercial rights expansion on routes between Vladivostok and the airports of South Korea.
The contents of Air Busan representatives' current visit is a witness for their serous intentions. In particular, the parties agreed on the plan of further interaction on issues of launching the new route for Air Busan from Busan to Vladivostok. Initially the Carrier considers the commencement of flights in the 3 quarter next year with the frequency of 3 flights per week by Airbus 321.
The regular air traffic from from Busan to Vladivostok has been operated by Vladivostok Air (Aeroflot Airlines Group) for several years once or twice a week depending on the season. There is a stable passenger flow on this destination and Air Busan as a low-cost airline can offer low-fare air travels enabling more affordable trips.
It is essential to mention that the Carrier's representatives' reaction to Vladivostok International Airport's offer of contribution to networking between Air Busan and Russian airlines operating on the Russian Far East air traffic market was extremely positive. It will result in the opening up the possibility of transporting the air travelers to Air Busan flights in Vladivostok from Yuzhno- Sakhalinsk, Khabarovsk, Petropavlovsk- Kamchatski and others. Then the air travelers are able to fly by Air Busan aircraft to Cheju Island, Osaka, Fukuoka, Quingdao, Shenyang, Hong Kong, Taibei and the Philippines.
