Who We Are

50 years of successful business operations and proven track record

Thank you for visiting Korean Air website.

On March 1, 1969, Korean Air started off as a small airline in Asia, with only eight planes. Since then, we have striven to develop new markets and improve customer service through continuous changes and investments.

“To be a respected leader in the world airline community.” This is the vision we announced in 2004 to celebrate Korean Air’s 35th anniversary. Under the slogan, “Excellence in Flight,” we have been endeavoring to provide our customers with safer and more distinguished services than any other airline in the world.

In 2019, Korean Air celebrated its 50th anniversary. With the love of our customers and trust of our nation, Korean Air has soared to greater heights as a leading global airline. We will never forget that our roots lie in the support and trust shown by our customers, who have been calling us the “Wings of the People” over the past half a century.

Korean Air is taking the next step and flying towards another 100 years. We will be reborn as the “Wings of the World” and contribute to creating a better society for all.

Under the core values of “safety” and “customer satisfaction,” we will continue dedicating the utmost effort to establishing Korean Air, an airline everyone wants to fly with, as a respected leader in the global aviation industry.

Thank you again for your support and trust.

Sincerely, from all at Korean Air
