South Korean low-cost carrier Jeju Air has started two new scheduled charter services and resumed a third.
The airline began four times weekly Busan-Chiang Mai and twice weekly Busan-Vientiane services on 24 and 27 December 2013 respectively, a spokeswoman said in an email to Flightglobal Pro. It also resumed the Jeju-Nanning service on 27 December and operates it once every five days.
Jeju Air is using Boeing 737-800 aircraft on the three routes, she says.
In 2014, the carrier plans to add "three to four aircraft", she adds. This will allow more flights to existing destinations such as those in Japan, Hong Kong and Guam in the first half of 2014. It will also allow the carrier to launch new services in the second half.
The spokeswoman reaffirmed the carrier's end-2015 target of completing the construction of its own hangar at Seoul’s Incheon International Airport. The airline began construction of the hangar, which will be able to accommodate two 737s, in July 2013.
Flightglobal’s Ascend Online Fleets database shows that Jeju Air has 13 737-800s in service and is scheduled to receive four aircraft on order this year, one in 2015 and two in 2016.
