History

T'way Air began as Hansung Airlines, which began flying between 2005 and 2008, after which the company reorganized and rebranded in 2010.[2] The 't' in t'way stands for together, today and tomorrow.[4]

The airline was established on 8 August 2010 with two Boeing 737-800s.[5] The following month, the airline obtained an air operator's certificate (AOC) permitting domestic flights and commenced operations with services between Gimpo International Airport and Jeju International Airport.[6] The following year an AOC for international operations was awarded and in October it launched the first international service, to Bangkok.[7] In 2013 the airline achieved a profit for the first time.[8] In November that year cargo services were launched.[9] In March 2014, T'way Air introduced its seventh Boeing 737-800 aircraft.[10][11]
