Cheaper flights from Southeast Asia to Korea soon!

Oh, I love competition!

The competition between budget airlines in the Asian region is heating up to the extent that Korean Air is setting up a budget unit - Air Korea, to compete with Singapore's very own Tiger Airways.

Air Korean is expected to fly to destinations in China, Japan, Thailand and Malaysia.

Wait a minute... where's Singapore???


Ok, I guess I can always put on my patriotic hat and ride on Tiger Airways since it has (intelligently) already inked a deal to fly to Incheon International Airport. For Hallyu friends in Malaysia and Thailand, it is a moment to rejoice as we all can get our kimchi fix for a fraction of the costs we now pay to fly to Korea.

Long live capitlism! Long live competition!
