KOREAN AIR

KOREAN AIR, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2019, has contributed greatly to the economic development of the nation and also improved customer comfort as it worked hard for the past half century, continually striving to develop flight paths across the world’s skies. KOREAN AIR was only a small airline company with only eight aircraft when it was founded, but now it has established itself as a global airline company that is leading the way for airline companies around the world in both name and deed.

KOREAN AIR continually pursues creative and innovative changes. We pave the way to the future with our untiring investment and improvements, doing our best to ensure a perfect safety record and inspire and impress our customers. As a result of all our efforts, in this year of our 50th anniversary, we will host the annual general meeting of IATA (International Air Transport Association), which is the largest event in the international aviation industry and this will improve KOREAN AIR’s reputation even more.

In addition to this, KOREAN AIR considers the environment and the future above all. For decades we have been planting forests in areas of Mongolia and China that have experienced desertification, and we have been extremely involved in several movements with regional areas to clean up the environment. With the introduction of ultra-efficient, eco-friendly aircraft, we have led the way in reducing carbon emissions, to make the world that we are living in much greener.

Here at KOREAN AIR, we communicate with our neighbours in many fields and we take our corporate social responsibility very seriously. We have introduced a Korean audio guide into the Louvre and the Orsay Museum in France, the Hermitage Museum in Russia and the British Museum in England and promoted the merits of Hangul to the world, thus contributing to Korean national pride. We support those who improve the reputation and status of Korea in the areas of culture, art and sport, through the Excellence Program. We are also extremely involved in a variety of social welfare projects including the swift provision of emergency supplies to areas around the global village that are affected by natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods.

We are now preparing ourselves to progress in leaps and bounds in the next 100 years. The KOREAN AIR of today always remembers the encouragement of the Korean people and the support of our guests who have made all of this possible, we will keep on moving forward powerfully but always maintain the values of our founding philosophy, “To create a transport service that serves the country” and our key operational value, “Customers first”. By establishing an optimal operating system and a flexible corporate culture, we will perfect “Excellence in Flight” and we will soar higher as a first-class aviation company that shows other global aviation companies the way.
