Korean Air in celebration mood

Anniversary celebrations are being held this month and next at Korean Air as the carrier marks 50 years in the air, with events including a mass gathering for staff in Seoul and a reception at Korean’s London office.

Next month, the airline will operate a special flight from Incheon to Ho Chi Minh to commemorate its first international route as a private airline, the forerunner to today’s network serving 124 cities in 44 countries.

In a further salute to the past, from 23 April-31 May selected flight attendants will wear a selection of 11 uniforms from 1969 to the present day on the major routes to Los Angeles, Tokyo, Beijing, Sydney and Jeju.

Korean Air president Walter Cho said at the Seoul event the company’s future aims would be to “satisfy our customers, raise the happiness of our employees and enhance the value of our shareholders, which will ultimately increase the value of Korean Air.”

The airline recently introduced its “Vision 2023” plan, which focuses on sustainable growth, improving its financial structure, transparency in corporate governance, and shareholder-friendly policies in all business areas.
