Korean Air, Vienna Airport partner to expand cargo ops

Korean Air has signed an agreement to strengthen its air cargo partnership with Vienna International Airport. The partnership aims to build on growing air cargo demand between Korea and Austria, and leverage Vienna Airport as a major hub to attract greater air cargo demand through joint marketing initiatives targeted at forwarders and customers. Korean Air will share market and industry insight with Vienna International Airport as part of the deal. Vienna Airport serves as a gateway to eastern Europe, and with continued Korean manufacturing investments in eastern Europe, Korean Air anticipates increased air cargo demand in the future.

“We are pleased to announce our collaboration with Vienna International Airport. Korean Air is fully committed to enhancing air cargo services and ensuring utmost customer satisfaction between Korea and Vienna with this agreement,” said Jaedong Eum, senior vice president and head of cargo business division at Korean Air.

“The neighbouring countries of Austria and Asia have been economic regions that have been closely linked through international air cargo traffic for many years. Especially in the automotive and electronics sectors, Asian companies rely on the manufacturing capacities in the eastern European region. Korean Air is an important air cargo partner since 20 years and I am pleased that we can now further expand our long-standing partnership in the cargo sector with this agreement,” commented Julian Jäger, joint chief executive and chief operating officer of Vienna Airport.
