South Korea’s LCC Jeju Air Signs Exclusive Partnership with Abacus
Abacus International, Asia Pacific’s leading revenue partner for airlines, announced today a new partnership with Jeju Air, Korea’s largest low-cost carrier (LCC) airline offering both domestic and international flights.
The distribution of Jeju’s content now gives Abacus-connected agents exclusive access to an ever-expanding LCC portfolio in Asia Pacific. Abacus users will have real-time access to all of Jeju’s flight schedules and fares by extending Jeju’s service offerings to customers initially in Korea and subsequently across the whole Asia Pacific region. With Jeju Air rapidly expanding its international network to China, Hong Kong, Japan, Philippines and Thailand, Abacus-connected agents can look forward to richer content and additional sales opportunities with the new Jeju Air-Abacus partnership.
“Distributing our content through the Abacus system greatly simplifies booking procedures for agents,” says Mr. Um Boo Young, Chief Operating Officer of Jeju Air. “It benefits our business as we can now achieve greater cost savings and efficiency and gives Jeju Air greater reach to our customers by providing options to other Korean city designations via our domestic and international routes.”
“With Jeju Air expanding rapidly to new destinations in China, such as Nanchang, and additional frequencies to Hong Kong, Japan and Thailand, Abacus is helping Jeju Air drive higher sales and better yield. This will drive greater two-way traffic flow between Southeast Asia and North Asia from Korea’s international airport hubs in Seoul and Busan, where Jeju Air operates from,” said Mr. Ho Hoong Mau, Division Head, Airline Distribution, Abacus International.
