T’Way first announced its intention to obtain widebodies in December 2020

Initially, its A330s will serve Kyrgyzstan, Singapore, Sydney, and Zagreb.

Without naming Asiana Airlines and Korean Air, T’Way suggests there is a window of opportunity to secure slots at overseas destinations prior to the merger of South Korea’s two biggest airlines.

It feels that LCCs operating on long-haul routes can help to expand customers’ choices.

T’Way, which is based at Seoul’s Gimpo International Airport, announced the addition of A330s to its fleet in June 2021.

Cirium fleets data indicates that T-Way has 24 Boeing 737-800s in service, with three examples in storage. It also has firm orders for three 737 Max 8s.
