Cathay offers UAE travellers special fares to South Korea

HONG KONG, June 21, 2018

Cathay Pacific has partnered with Korea Tourism Organization (KTO) to offer UAE travellers special fares and additional benefits to South Korea this summer.

Cathay Pacific customers can now enjoy special fares starting from Dh2,155 ($586.6) in Economy Class and Dh7,135 ($1,942.2) in Business Class when travelling to Seoul, Busan and Jeju. To give travellers more flexibility to experience these cities, the fares permit a combination of two destinations in South Korea. For example, one can choose to travel from Dubai to Seoul and return from Jeju to Dubai.

This offer is valid for all flights booked on Cathay Pacific before June 30 and is valid for travel until September 15.

As an added benefit, Cathay Pacific customers who travel from Dubai to or from Seoul are eligible to register for a free 'One-Day Special Pass' to Lotte World. This offer is available to the first 100 travellers who book flights during the promotion period. Seoul’s enticing Lotte World is a vast leisure complex which houses the world’s largest indoor theme park and features ‘Magic Island’ – an outdoor amusement park situated on an artificial island that is linked by monorail to shopping malls, a luxury hotel and a Korean folk museum.

Cathay Pacific area manager Middle East, Jonathan Ng, said: “We are always looking for ways to inspire and enrich our customers’ travel experience. This partnership with KTO provides great value and flexibility for travellers from the Gulf to explore South Korea’s many and varied attractions.”

South Korea is famously rich in culture. Seoul, the capital city, is home to numerous attractions and amusements which appeal to travellers of all ages, from the historic palace of Gyeongbokgung to eclectic shopping and casual dining in Myeong-dong. 

Jeju is a perfect island for hiking and exploring nature. Its beautiful landscape is enhanced by the dramatic Jeju Volcanic Island and Lava Tubes, listed as a Unesco World Heritage site. Alternatively, visitors can enjoy the charms of Busan. This large coastal city is known for its beaches, mountains and temples including the popular attractions of Haeundae Beach, Nurimaru APEC House and Gamchoen cultural village.

Korea Tourism Organization regional director Dubai, Kenny Kang, said: “We have been working with Cathay Pacific to position South Korea as an affordable family destination for residents of the Gulf, and we look forward to welcoming UAE visitors to experience our country’s diverse food and unique culture.”

To help visitors discover more during their stay, KTO has published an extensive list of top travel tips which should not be missed. These include a selection of special hotel packages available on the Korea Tourism website. - TradeArabia News Service
