Since the inaugural Jetstar flight between Sydney and Seoul last year, the airline has handled over 90,000 passengers.

At the moment, the Australian carrier currently operates this service on a thrice-weekly basis, and will be adding a fourth from February 5 next year.

On top of this, they will also be instigating a new service between Brisbane and Seoul from February 1, which means the carrier will offer a total of 250,000 seats per year on those two routes.

Below is the scheduling until March 2024:

Flight #   Frequency   From   To   Depart   Arrive   
JQ47   Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun   SYD   ICN   11:45   20:15   
JQ48   Mon, Wed, Fri, Sun   ICN   SYD   21:50   10:05 + 1 day

JQ54 Tue, Thu, Sat   ICN   BNE   21:50   08:00 + 1 day   

Jenn Armor, Jetstar’s Executive Manager of Customer commented on this milestone:

“The success of this route comes as no surprise to us – Seoul is a destination that has something for everyone.  

 “The city’s rich history, gorgeous traditional villages and teahouses, bustling markets, incredible food, vibrant K-pop scene and exciting nightlife make it a must-see destination. 

 “We’re excited more and more Australians are discovering and falling in love with Seoul, while South Koreans are getting to access Jetstar’s great low fares and service, making a trip down under more convenient and affordable.” 

All eyes will be on the carrier to see what other successes will be produced on the routes to Seoul from Sydney & Brisbane.
