Eastar opens 5 new air routes using U-Fly Alliance connecting flights
SEOUL-- Eastar Jet said Sunday it has opened five new air routes using connecting flights of other low cost carriers affiliated with the U-Fly Alliance.
Eastar joined the alliance, the world's first alliance of low-cost carriers, last July and launched in December an air route to Thailand's Chiang Mai from Incheon using the HK Express flight connecting Hong Kong and Chiang Mai.
U-Fly Alliance was launched in January 2016 with the participation of HK Express, Lucky Air, Urumqi Air and West Air, focusing on Hong Kong, China and Southeast Asia.
The new routes are ones linking Incheon-Hong Kong-Kunming, Incheon-Hong Kong-Nha Trang, Incheon-Narita-Hong Kong, Incheon-Osaka-Hong Kong and Incheon-Fukuoka-Hong Kong.
Holders of the tickets linking the new air routes are allowed to stay for up to 15 days in stopover cities.
