Korean Air signed an agreement to strengthen air cargo partnership with Vienna International Airport.

The partnership aims to capture growing air cargo demand between Korea and Austria, and leverage Vienna International 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 to render relevant services to customers.

Located in the heart of Europe and with a history of bridging East and West Europe, Austria serves as a pivotal gateway to surrounding nations like Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic. With continued Korean manufacturing investments in the area, the airline anticipates increased air cargo demand in the years to come.

“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 neighboring 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,” said Julian Jäger, Joint CEO and COO of Vienna Airport (Flughafen Wien AG).
