Korean Air Reviews
The South Korean flag carrier was initially known as “Korean Air Lines;” the airline was established in 1962 by the South Korean Government. The purpose of creating a new airline was to replace Korean National Airlines. The current CEO and Chairman of Korean Air, Mr. Cho, is a 66-year-old Korean and is also the Chairman of the Hanjin Transport Group.
The largest airline in South Korea is known as Daehan Hanggong in their language or Korean Air Line Co., Ltd. but is operating as Korean Air. Now, Korean Air operates from Seoul Gimpo International Airport and Seoul Incheon International Airport, and has a fleet size of 158; this consists of of 29 Airbus A330, 10 Airbus A380, 40 Boeing 737 Next Gen, 37 Boeing 747, and 42 Boeing 777. To expand their fleet soon, they ordered 2 new Boeing 787.
As part of the SkyTeam alliance, developments are continuous. Did you know that in the 2018 Winter Olympics, Korean Air will be the sponsor? The recently nominated airline as “Leading international airline” has also been consecutively nominated as “Asia’s Leading Airline” and “World’s Most Innovative Airline – First Class.”
