New Korea flights take off from the Gold Coast
A new Jetstar direct flight from the Gold Coast to Seoul, South Korea has commenced today in partnership with Korean air carrier, Jeju Air.
The extra flight service is expected to bring in an additional 156,000 inbound airline seats to the Gold Coast and generate more than $176 million for the local economy.
Queensland’s lifestyle, food and wine and natural beauty has been a drawcard for the Korean tourists – with research showing visitor nights from younger Korean tourists to Queensland increasing 12.5 per cent in the 12 months to June 2019.
The new service has been supported through the Queensland Government’s Attracting Aviation Fund and is in partnership with Queensland Airports Limited and Destination Gold Coast.
