Apple launches KL-Busan charter for the first time
APPLE Vacations & Conventions will organise a charter service from Kuala Lumpur to Busan to coincide with the Hari Raya Puasa festive period beginning in August. This is the company's first charter to South Korea. Departing on August 27 and returning September 2, the 288-seat flight will utilise Malaysia Airlines' (MAS) A330-300 aircraft. Senior manager, procurement & marketing, Ellyza Lee said hot demand on the Kuala Lumpur-Incheon sector made it difficult to get seats on MAS and Korean Air during the peak outbound travel period. Last year, during the same one-week Hari Raya period, the company managed to sell 20 series group departures to Incheon. Its all-inclusive package will include tours to Busan, Seoul and Jeju Island. -TTG Asia.
