Korean Air finalizes its 44% investment in Czech Airlines

Czech Airlines-CSA (Prague) has a new savior. Announced last month, Korean Air (Seoul) finalized its 44 percent investment in the flag carrier yesterday (April 11). The Czech government has now been successful in finding a viable airline partner to help the struggling carrier survive the difficult current environment in Europe. Without a new partner, Czech Airlines would have been liquidated by the government.

However Korean Air has publicly stated it is not interested in managing the the Czech carrier. Korean Air is likely to use its new investment as a feeder airline for its Asian flights.
