SINGAPORE: If you’re looking for a good bargain on flights and have always wanted to visit South Korea, here’s a well-kept secret for you: T’Way Air, the third-largest Korean low-cost carrier in the international market, flies non-stop from Seoul to Singapore daily.
The best news yet is that flights go as low as a little over $350 for round-trip tickets, and you might even score a discount if you download a flight aggregator or travel company apps. (For example, when we checked Trip.com, it said you could get an additional $20 off if you got the app. You’re welcome.)
And if travelling within South Korea appeals to you, T’Way Air flights also fly you to Busan, Jeju, Daegu, Cheongju, and Gwangju.
But first, getting to Seoul.
Early birds rejoice. The daily T’Way Air flight leaves Terminal 3 at Changi Airport at 1:55 in the morning and arrives in Seoul at 9:55 am. And since it leaves Seoul at 7:00 in the evening on the day of your departure and you arrive shortly past midnight the next day, you get an extra day in South Korea, presuming you won’t be a zombie from lack of sleep. Just make sure to catch some shut-eye on your flight!
Unfortunately, food is not included in the ticket price. However, T’Way Air has some meal choices, from light to heavier options, such as rice meals, which are reasonably priced. Bibimpap or beef bulgogi, anyone?
One caveat, though. If you plan on availing of meals or drinks on board, ensure you’ve got cash, with the airline accepting Korean Won, US Dollars, Japanese Yen, or Chinese Yuan.
Unlike other budget carriers, T’Way Air allows each passenger free checked luggage, provided it stays within a 15-kilo limit. Aside from that, travellers are also allowed a 10-kilo carry-on baggage. Safe travels! /TISG
