Korean Air extends partnership with Vienna Airport

Korean Air and Vienna Airport have signed an agreement to expand their existing partnership to meet growing demand for cargo services between Vienna and South Korea.

Plans to extend the partnership include joint marketing initiatives targeting freight forwarders as well as the exchange of industry expertise to optimise services.

Vienna Airport services as a cargo hub for goods to and from Asia such as for customers involved in automobile production and for electronic and pharmaceutical goods.

Its geographic position in Europe makes it an entry point for neighbouring countries including Slovakia, Hungary and the Czech Republic, and road links means goods can reach over 20 countries within 36 hours by truck using the European motorway network.

Jaedong Eom, Senior Vice President and Head of the Cargo Business Division at Korean Air, says, “We are pleased to announce our collaboration with Vienna Airport. Korean Air is fully committed to improving air transport services through this agreement and ensuring the highest possible customer satisfaction between Korea and Vienna.”

Julian Jäger, Joint CEO and COO of Flughafen Wien, says, “Korean Air has been an important air cargo partner for 20 years and I am pleased that we can now further expand our long-standing partnership in the cargo sector with this agreement.”
