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.

Korean Air is working with UNICEF for global COVID-19 vaccine transport

Korean Air has made this announcement:

One of the world’s largest air freight companies, Korean Air, has signed an agreement with UNICEF for global transportation of COVID-19 vaccine and medical equipment.

UNICEF is responsible for the global supply of vaccines as part of its effort for equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines. The plan is to provide around 145 countries with vaccines in the first half of the year.

Cooperation from airlines like Korean Air with global supply chains, capabilities and expertise is essential to transporting the vaccines around the world. UNICEF has selected 16 airlines, including Korean Air, to work with based on strict standards such as a global network, cargo capacity and experience shipping specialized cargo such as medical items.

Last September, Korean Air launched a task force to ensure that vaccines could be safely transported by the airline considering the unique requirements for temperature and storage. Some types require temperatures as low as -60 degrees Celsius, refrigeration below -20 degrees Celsius, or temperature maintenance between 2 and 8 degrees Celsius.

With the signing of the agreement with UNICEF, Korean Air will continue its leadership role in transporting COVID-19 vaccines and medical supplies. The airline is committed to participate in these humanitarian and relief shipments as long as necessary.

UNICEF is a United Nations agency established in 1946 to provide aid to children around the world. As the world’s largest medical distribution organization, UNICEF has procured and distributed more than 2 billion vaccines, medicines and medical supplies annually worldwide for the past 20 years.

 

On the financial side, Korean Air posted an operating profit of 109 billion won ($97.55 million) in 2020, as cargo sales helped offset a slump in passenger travel on the back of coronavirus restrictions according to Reuters.

Korean Air to acquire ailing Asiana Airlines for $1.6 billion

Korean Air has announced it will acquire rival Asiana Airlines for 1.8 trillion ($1.6 billion). It will create the world’s 10th largest airline by fleet size.

Korean Air maintains the highest quality of cabin air with HEPA filters and air circulation systems

Korean Air has made this announcement:

Korean Air launched a special inspection on HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filters on its aircraft in efforts to maintain safety and cleanliness of cabin air.

According to Korean Air, the airline completed a special inspection on HEPA filters and air circulation systems on its aircraft. Korean Air performed checks on the state of HEPA filters installed in air circulation systems, and changed the HEPA filters that needed replacement. The airline also checked the overall performance of air circulation systems by testing the operation of recirculation fans.

Korean Air has been actively reassuring passengers of a safe in-flight environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. Korean Air maintains the quality of cabin air with HEPA filters and air circulation systems that minimize the spread of viruses.

Airbus also stressed the safety of in-flight environment. According to the leading aircraft manufacturer, aircraft are designed in compliance with all Airworthiness Regulations to provide the highest level of cabin air quality.

In-flight HEPA filters remove 99.97% of any viruses and bacteria

HEPA filters installed in aircraft effectively remove nearly 100% of any particulate matter that may be present in the air. Particles larger than 0.3 μm (micrometer) cannot penetrate the close-knit fibers within the filters. Even particles smaller than 0.3 μm are filtered as they stick to the fibers, its process varying with the air flow or velocity. These filters meet the standards set for hospital operating rooms or medical laboratories, filtering nearly all of the microscopic bacteria or viruses in the cabin.

Droplets, known as the medium through which COVID-19 viruses spread, are 5㎛ in size, and aerosol particles are about 1㎛ in size. HEPA filters effectively remove droplets, aerosol particles and COVID-19 viruses that may be present onboard.

Korean Air regularly exchanges HEPA filters in its aircraft to ensure effective performance. In 2019, the airline spent one billion Korean won (nearly 840,000 U.S. dollars) on exchanging HEPA filters.


Air circulation system up and running during flight

Air circulation systems start operating when the airplane is on the ground, when APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) is activated for power supply.

The air circulation system continues to operate during the flight. Aircraft cabin is supplied with a mix of outside air and filtered air, combined with a ratio of 50 to 50.

Outside air at a cruising height is 50 degrees Celsius, with a humidity level below one percent. When fresh air enters the airplane through engines, it is compressed at a high temperature. Next, the air goes through the ozone converter, which removes harmful ozone components. Then the heat exchanger adjusts the air temperature.

The fresh air is then mixed with the HEPA-filtered air before entering the cabin. This process makes it an inhospitable environment for viruses and bacteria to survive.


Cabin air flows from the top down, preventing the spread of contaminants

The direction of air flow also plays a crucial role in preventing spread of COVID-19 onboard.

The sterilized air enters the cabin from the vents in the ceiling and exits through the floor, creating a top to bottom flow. Even if virus-containing droplets are ejected into air, they would fall to the floor, instead of onto surrounding seats. This leads to lower probability of virus transmission in the cabin.

Moreover, the air is exchanged every two to three minutes. Generally, the air is exchanged every ten minutes in case of hospitals and every twenty minutes in offices.

Korean Air is committed to preventing the spread of COVID-19 by carrying out regular and special disinfection on all of its aircraft. In addition, the airline implements zone boarding to minimize contact, and requires passengers to wear masks on all flights.

Korean Air further reduces its schedule

Korean Air has provided this update:

Due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Korean Air has reduced or suspended some of its routes.

For help with rescheduling, please contact a Korean Air Service Center or the travel agency through which the flights were booked.

Korean Air flight attendant diagnosed with coronavirus, may have flown to Los Angeles

From the Los Angeles Times:

“A South Korean flight attendant who has been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus may have serviced trips between Seoul and Los Angeles last week, according to several South Korean media outlets.

South Korea’s Center for Disease Control said Wednesday local time that a female flight attendant who serviced a flight Feb. 15 from Tel Aviv to Seoul had tested positive for the virus. On board the flight was a church group returning from a pilgrimage to Israel; 30 other infections have been connected to the group so far, according to local authorities.

The South Korean media outlets reported that the same flight attendant had serviced flights KE017 and KE012 on Feb. 19 and 20 to and from Los Angeles International.”
