Korean Air to delay its takeover and merger of Asiana Airlines to 2024

Korean Air is now planning to acquire Asiana Airlines in 2022 and fully merge both companies during 2024 pending worldwide approvals.

This will make Korean Air the seventh largest airline in the world when completed.

Korean Air is awaiting approval from reported seven countries due to antitrust concerns.

Once completed, the Asiana brand will be retired.
