Vienna Airport Korean Air

Vienna Airport and Korean Air signed an agreement today to expand their partnership. The objective is to jointly meet the growing demand for air cargo services between Korea and Vienna Airport, which is a flight and cargo hub for Central and Eastern Europe. Plans include joint market initiatives targeting freight forwarders and customers and exchanging industry expertise as the basis for offering optimal services. Korean Air has been operating cargo flights to Vienna regularly since 2004.

Thanks to its geographically favourable position in Europe, Vienna Airport has established itself as a global business interface for air cargo for neighbouring countries such as the Slovak Republic, Hungary, and the Czech Republic. It has long served as a link connecting Eastern Europe and Western Europe. Due to Korean companies’ increasing regional investments, Korean Air expects a growing demand for air cargo in the coming years.

“We are pleased to announce our collaboration with Vienna Airport. Korean Air is fully committed to improving air transport services through this agreement and ensuring the highest possible customer satisfaction between Korea and Vienna,” states Jaedong Eom, Senior Vice President and Head of the Cargo Business Division at Korean Air.

“The neighbouring countries of Austria and Asia have been economic regions 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 has been an important air cargo partner for 20 years, and I am pleased that we can now further expand our long-standing partnership in the cargo sector with this agreement,” says Julian Jäger, Joint CEO and COO of Flughafen Wien AG.

“Korean Air has already been leveraging Vienna Airport for two decades to provide rapid and reliable access to Central and Eastern European markets. Under the new agreement to further expand our cooperation, we will jointly develop our air transport services along the route between Vienna and Incheon Airport in South Korea to optimally meet the increasing demand,” adds Michal Zach, Head of Ground Handling Services at Flughafen Wien AG.

Vienna serves as a cargo hub for goods to and from Asia, for example, for customers involved in automobile production in Central and Eastern Europe and electronic and pharmaceutical goods. Thanks to a well-developed logistics infrastructure and spacious handling capacities, Vienna Airport offers quick transhipment times via the European motorway network, enabling goods to reach about 23 countries by truck within 36 hours.
