SEOUL, SOUTH KOREASouth Korea's budget specialist T’Way eyes more long-haul aircraft as an addition to three Airbus A330-300 jets with which it will begin operations from February.

The airline says it is examining planes from mid to long-range to deploy on intercontinental routes such as from Seoul to London, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, and Spain.

T'Way's A330s, which joined the airline's fleet in June 2021, will initially fly to Kyrgyzstan, Singapore, Sydney, and Zagreb.

T’Way says that there is an opportunity to secure slots at overseas destinations before the merger of South Korea’s two biggest airlines, Asiana Airlines and Korean Air.

As a low-cost carrier operating on long-haul routes, the airline believes it can offer travelers cheaper options.

T'Way currently operates 24 Boeing 737-800s in its regional network. The airline also has firm orders for three Boeing 737 MAX 8 jets.
