T'way Air Takes Flight to Europe: Low-Cost Carrier Launches Service Between Zagreb and Seoul

T'way Air, a South Korean low-cost carrier (LCC), has set its sights on Europe with the much-anticipated launch of flights between Zagreb, Croatia, and Seoul's Incheon International Airport. This inaugural flight, which took off on May 16, 2024, marks a significant milestone for T'way Air, being their first foray into the European market. The new route is expected to be a boon for both leisure and business travelers. 


Tourists in Croatia and South Korea will now have a more affordable option for connecting the two countries, fostering cultural exchange and boosting tourism industries on both sides. T'way Air operates the Zagreb-Seoul route with a frequency of three flights per week. Passengers departing Zagreb can expect to take off on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The journey utilizes a spacious Airbus A330-300 aircraft, offering a choice between standard economy seating and a limited number of Business Saver seats for those seeking a more premium experience.


While the outbound flight from Zagreb features a technical stopover for refueling at Manas International Airport in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, the return flight from Seoul to Zagreb is a nonstop journey. The total travel time, including the refueling stop, is approximately 15 hours and 50 minutes. This strategic expansion by T'way Air reflects the growing popularity of low-cost carriers in the long-haul travel market. Passengers seeking budget-friendly options for long-distance travel are increasingly turning to LCCs like T'way Air, which offer competitive fares without compromising on basic comfort and amenities.

The success of the Zagreb-Seoul route is likely to pave the way for T'way Air's further expansion into Europe. The airline has already expressed ambitions to launch services to major European cities like Paris, Rome, Barcelona, and Frankfurt in the latter half of 2024. This move signifies T'way Air's commitment to fostering stronger connections and travel opportunities between South Korea and Europe.
