Greatest Flights – World’s Busiest Route – Seoul to Jeju

Seoul Gimpo AirportIt’s not one that’s on many peoples’ radars, but a short domestic route in South Korea is actually the world’s busiest passenger route, and is the subject of this Greatest Flights.

The route is Seoul to Jeju, and island to the south of the country. It is operated by no fewer than seven airlines, namely Air Busan, Asiana Airlines, Eastar Jet, Jeju Air, Jin Air, Korean Air, and T’way.

Flights take off between Seoul’s Gimpo Airport and Jeju as often as every five minutes during the day, with over 69,000 flights between the two every year.

Whilst most flights are operated by regular Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 medium haul jets, the 280 mile trip is sometimes flown by Boeing 747-400 and 767-300s at peak times.
