SilkAir’s Singapore To Busan Trip Is First Non-Stop Direct Flight
If you’re a fan of Busan, good news — you no longer have to endure flights with painfully long stopovers. SilkAir is launching a direct flight service to the popular, picturesque city of South Korea on 1 May.
The flight will be the only direct flight from Singapore to Busan.
4 flights to and fro each week
There will be 4 flights from Singapore to Busan each week, all departing at 11.15pm:
Each flight takes around 6 and a half hours, which means reaching Busan at roughly 7am local time on the following day.
The return flights run on all the other days, with an overlap on Saturday:
- Tuesday, 8.00am
- Thursday, 8.30am
- Saturday, 8.30am
- Sunday, 8.30am
Cut down on travel time
The direct flights will save you anywhere from 2 to 4 hours depending on which flight and route you take.
Currently, the fastest flight – according to Skyscanner – there takes 8 and half hours with a stopover at Hong Kong.
Then there’s that other route where you fly to Seoul and take a train to Busan. That’s a 6-plus hour flight and a 2-plus hour train ride, putting you at a total of 9 to 10 hours.
So if you’ve been itching to visit the streets Busan but fear getting onto the train because of that zombie movie, you can safely start planning for that holiday now.
