Korean Air received Air Transport World’s (ATW) 2021 Airline of the Year Award during ATW’s Airline Industry Achievement Awards held on the evening of October 5 at the Revere Hotel in Boston, U.S.
The event was attended by Walter Cho, Chairman of Korean Air; Keehong Woo, President of Korean Air; and the airline’s flight crew who participated in the repatriation flight that brought Korean nationals safely to Korea from Wuhan at the onset of the pandemic.
“It is an honor to win the ATW Airline of the Year Award at this most difficult time faced by the airline industry,” said Walter Cho. “COVID-19 has halted air travel and grounded our aircraft, but I am proud that our employees’ dedication and efforts have been recognized by the global aviation industry.”
