Busan Int'l to Int'l Transit

Hi all, I'm looking at flying KoreanAir into Busan and Air Busan out a couple hours later, both Int'l flights.

Does Air Busan allow online check-in, and/or will they have a transfer desk after we deplane? Trying to decide between 1.5 and 2.5 hour layover between these separate tickets, we would do 1.5 hours if the process is seamless but 2.5 hours if we may have to clear immigration and re-check baggage with Air Busan before stamping out of Korea again

There is no interline agreement between BX and KE, so most likely you will have to reclaim and re-check baggage.

You ABSOLUTELY will have to collect bags and re-check in at the check in counter in the public area. Korean Air's website for Busan Airport says this directly. They only transfer for Jin Air only (since they own it).
