An increase in the use of budget airlines helped drive Korea’s overall air passenger traffic up by 8.7 percent last month from a year earlier with 8.84 million passengers in February.

“It was mainly due to an increase in flights offered by budget airlines,” a travel ministry official said.

Jin Air and Air Busan did especially well with 1.61 million passengers — a nearly 50 percent rise from 1.07 million served the year before, according to Yonhap.

Traffic on international routes rose 11.6 percent to 6.53 million in February from 5.85 million a year earlier; while passengers on domestic routes rose to 2.31 million, up 1.1 percent from 2.28 million.
