3. Business Travel Network in Korea
3.1. The Seven Components of the Travel Industry
The travel industry comprises thousands of companies that produce products and
services for travelers. These companies range in size from small businesses to multinational
corporations. The roadside hamburger stand is just as much a part of the industry as is a

major airline. (And to a hungry traveler, the hamburger stand may be even more important.)
The combined efforts of all these travel and tourism companies enable people to travel from
one location to another. The companies can be organized into seven groups; or components.
according to their function.

Air transportation and services

Maritime transportation and services

Ground transportation and services

The hospitality industry

The tourism industry

Whosale and distribution companies

The travel mart

Three components provide the most basic service transportation. There are the components
that get people where they’re going:

Air transportation and services
Maritime transportation and services
Ground transportation and services
Two components care for and entertain travelers:
The hospitality industry
The tourism industry
Two components provide the means for distributing the products and services of the other
components to travelers:
Whosale and distribution companies
The travel mart
3.2. Business Travel Network in Korea
* Air transportation and services:
Speaking of Korea's biggest and most famous airline, many people will think of
Korean Air. However, in addition to the airline, there are still three Korean airlines are
equally famous in the country Kim Chi in particular and in Asia in general. Just know the
information about the flight of the four Korean airlines below you will be easier to travel in
the country of Kim Chi and neighboring countries.

Korean Air

Topping the list of the largest Korean airlines is Korean Air. It is also known as one
of the largest and most popular airlines in Asia. The company was established in 1962 by
the Korean government with the initial name of Korean Air Lines. However, in 1969, the
company was bought by Hanjin Shipping and named Korean Air. Since then, Korean Air
has become a privately owned and growing airline.
Currently, Korean Air has 158 aircraft. All of them are equipped with modern
facilities to serve the large air routes of 129 cities of more than 45 foreign countries. In
addition, with the experienced staff, enthusiasm and attractive services on the flight has

helped Korean Air bring many prestigious awards. Outstanding among them is the title of
one of the 30 best airlines in the world in 2014.
Asiana Airlines

Following the popularity and growth of Korean Air is Asiana Airlines. This is one of
the seven famous 5 star airlines in the world. With the motto of "maximum safety and
provide customer satisfaction services", Asiana Airlines has quickly captured the hearts of
travel enthusiasts in the world, especially in Asia.
Asiana Airlines was founded on February 17, 1988, but it took nearly 10 months for
the new carrier to make its first flight. Its head office is located at Incheon International
Airport and the inland hub at Gimpo International Airport. The airline's fleet is also quite
powerful with 85 advanced aircraft, specially designed seats, 2.6 m long, called Oz Quadra
Smartium in the merchant bay.
Not only that, but also on the passenger flights, the team's staff also teach origami,
magic show, violin and make fashion shows for passengers. Therefore, in 2012, Asiana
Airlines has been recognized by Skytrax as the best airline in Asia.
Air Busan

Although only established in 2007, Air Busan is one of the most famous Korean
airlines. The





International Airlines,



Beomcheondong Road, Busanjingu District, Busan. With its modern design, luxury and
class services, Air Busan has captured a greater number of passengers from Seoul to Busan
than Korean Air.

Over the years, Air Busan has more than 10 aircraft, operating in domestic flights:
Busan - Gimpo, Busan - Jeju, Busan - Seoul ... and foreign flights with more than 10 other
destinations. each other around the world, mainly in Asia. And in Vietnam, passengers will
also easily buy Air Busan tickets to major Korean cities such as Busan, Jeju, Seoul, ... at
relatively low prices.
Jeju Air

At the end of the list of Korean airlines famous land of Kim Chi is Jeju Air. Founded
in 2005, Jeju Air is a Korean airline based in Jeju City, Jeju-do. It is owned by Aekyung
Group (81.7%) and Jeju Provincial Government (4.54%). On July 11, 2008, Jeju Air made
its first international flight from Jeju to Hiroshima.
Initially, the company focused exclusively on domestic routes between Jeju and the
Korean mainland via Jeju International Airport or Gimpo International Airport in Seoul,
South Korea. However, in recent years, Jeju Air has developed international routes in Asia
such as Bangkok, Philippines, Hong Kong, Japan and Vietnam. There are more than 10 Jeju
Air aircraft in between and some of them are ordered.
* Maritime transportation and services:


Seaports/ Cruise Ports in Korea
Cruise tourism, unlike a ferry whose purpose is to transport, includes the concepts of
a hotel, tourism, resort and transportation. A cruise ship refers to a ship that provides highquality services while cruising, regularly or irregularly, to beautiful tourist spots located
relatively far away. As the structures and functions of a cruise ship incorporate the
characteristics of hotels and resorts from the construction phase, cruise tourism possesses
distinct characteristics that are associated with a variety of industries. It is an industry, an
amalgamation of several industries, which creates added values through the goods and
services related to cruises.
The cruise market is considered to be a promising industry of the 21st century. It is
the fastest-growing high-value added tourism industry and is growing globally at an annual
average rate of 7%. (Cruise Industry News, 2016-2017). The total number of cruise
passengers has grown rapidly: 13.24 million passengers in 2005, 17.87 million passengers
in 2010, 20.42 million passengers in 2013 and 23.60 million passengers in 2016. It is
expected that the cruise tourism market in 2017 will reach 26.02 million passengers, a 10%
increase over 2016, and will continue to grow steadily annually: 27.40 million passengers in
2018 and 29.64 million passengers in 2019.


Up until now, the cruise tourism market has been formed around North America and
Europe. However, with the rapid development of China and the development of the tourism
industry in the Asia region, it is deemed that the cruise tourism market of the Asia region
will grow.


Recently in China, the desire to travel abroad among the Chinese population has
been increasing following its economic growth. The major foreign cruise operators,
realizing the trend in China, are actively offering cruise tourism products originating from
the ports of Tianjin and Shanghai: All three major international cruise operators, Royal
Caribbean, Princess Cruises and Costa Cruises, are based in Shanghai.

* Ground transportation and services:
Ground transportation in Korea is provided by extensive networks of Railways,
Highways, Bus routes and Ferry services. Korea is the third country in the world to operate
a commercial maglev train.
The largest railway operator is Korail. Railway network is managed by Korea Rail
Network Authority.
Korea Train Express began service in April 2004, as Korea's first high - speed
service. Intercity services are provided by Saemaeul-ho and Mugunghwa-ho. Saemaeul-ho
generally stops less than Mugunghwa-ho and provides more comfortable seats and

service. Tonggeun (commuter train, not to be confused withsubways) serves some selected
lines. They stop in all stations and seat reservation is not available. On routes where KTX
operates, air travel significantly declined with less passengers choosing to fly and airlines
offering less flights.
New Nuriro-ho service was recently added between Seoul and Sinchang Station.
Nuriro-ho serves commuters around Seoul Metropolitan Area, providing shorter travel time
than Seoul Subway. The rapid trains have same cost and seat reservation as Mugunghwa-ho.
Korail plans to expand the service area. There's also a plan to introduce ITX-Saemaul,
which is supposed to replace Saemaul-ho. It began its operating in June 2014, and the train
will replace Saemaul one by one until 2025.
Seoul, Busan, Daegu, Gwangju, Daejeon and Incheon — all have subway systems.
Seoul's subway system is the oldest system in the country, with Cheongnyangnisection
of Line 1 opening in 1974.
The first tram line in Seoul started operation between Seodaemun and
Cheongnyangni in December 1898. The network was expanded to cover the entire
downtown area (Jung-gu and Jongno-gu districts) as well as surrounding neighborhoods,
including Cheongnyangni in the east, Mapo- Gu in the West, and Noriaangjin across the
Han River to the south.
The networks reached its peak in 1941, but was abandoned in favor of cars and the
development of a subway system in 1968. Seoul Subway Line 1 and Line 2 follow the old
streetcar routes along Jongnoand Euljiro, respectively.


Regional services: Virtually all towns in South Korea of all sizes are served by
regional bus service. Regional routes are classified as gosok bus ( 남 남 남 남 , "high
speed" express bus) or sioe bus (남남남남, "suburban" intercity bus) with gosok buses
operating over the longer distances and making the fewest (if any) stops en route.
Shioe buses typically operate over shorter distances, are somewhat slower, and make
more stops.
Local services: Within cities and towns, two types of city bus operate in
general:jwaseok ( 남 남 , "coach") and dosihyeong ( 남 남 남 , "city type") or ipseok ( 남 남 ,
"standing"). Both types of bus often serve the same routes, make the same (or fewer)
stops and operate on similar frequencies, but jwaseok buses are more expensive and
offer comfortable seating, while doshihyeong buses are cheaper and have fewer and
less comfortable seats. Many small cities and towns do not have jwaseok buses and
their buses are officially callednongeochon (남남남, "rural area" bus).
Other services: Incheon International Airport is served by an extensive network of
high-speed buses from all parts of the country. Beginning in the late 1990s, many
department stores operated their own small networks of free buses for shoppers, but
government regulation, confirmed by a court decision on June 28, 2001, have banned
department stores from operating buses. However, most churches, daycare centres and
private schools send buses around to pick up their congregants, patients or pupils.
* The hospitality industry:
Last year, new hotel openings were mainly in the economy and midscale segments,
comprising international brands such as Ibis Styles, Holiday Inn Express, Four Points by Sheraton,
Best Western and local brands including Shilla Stay. The only luxury hotel opening in 2015 was the
317-room Four Seasons Hotel Seoul. The upcoming hotel pipeline consists of a few international
brands including the Hyatt Place Seoul and the Courtyard Seoul Namdaemun.


In 2015, approximately 647 rooms opened in Busan, the majority of which were classified
as economy and midscale hotels. Over the next two years, approximately 2.800 rooms are expected
to be completed in Busan with several notable international brands including Hilton and Kempinski
set to debut in the market. If all hotels materialise, Busan’s hotel supply will increase by a CAGR of

Existing hotel supply in Jeju is dominated by Korean hotel brands such as Shilla and
Lotte as well as several owner-operated hotels. International brands are rare and limited to
the Ramada Plaza and the Hyatt Regency. However, with the development of the integrated
resorts such as Resorts World Jeju and Jeju Airest City, more international operators are
considering the longer term potential of Jeju as a regional resort tourism destination.
