Budget airlines in Korea have seen a substantial year-on-year rise in profit in the Q1 2018. Their combined profit has more than doubled when compared to the same time frame in 2017.
The figures are taken from the collective operating profits of Korea's six low-cost carriers — one of which is Eastar Jet — and show that numbers increased by 131% to bring in 186.1 billion won. Additionally, revenue was at 1.18 trillion won, meaning that the total revenue grew by 34.2%. The other five low-cost Korean carriers include Jeju Air, JinAir, T'way Air, Air Busan, and Air Seoul.
The boost in numbers could be due to the fast-growing demand for international and domestic flights within Korea and the rest of the world.
