Korean Air Adopts Boeing's Connexion Internet
Korean Air Chairman Cho Yang-Ho tries internet while Mr. Carson looks on.
Korean Air has recently announced that it selected Connexion by Boeing as its service provider of high-speed Internet-based communications. The national flag carrier signed a letter of intent agreement on April 4, 2004, for the first installation of the Connexion by BoeingSM mobile connectivity service in early 2005. Actual services will begin shortly after that.

Mr. Scott Carson, president of Connexion by Boeing, said "with our agreement to provide the Connexion by Boeing service to Korean Air and its passengers, we are gaining a widely respected airline customer that has consistently demonstrated a strong commitment to innovation and passenger services."

He added that Korea has the highest broadband penetration rate in the world. So, the high-speed connectivity that Korean Air passengers have in their homes and offices can now be extended to their in-flight travel experience, providing them with affordable choices for how to spend their time in the cabin.

"Proudly marking the 35 anniversary this year we announced a new vision to provide customers a greatly enhanced in-flight experience and instill a new corporate culture within Korean Air." said Mr. Y. H. Kim, president of Korean Air's Passenger Business Division. "Our new vision is to be a respected leader in the world airline community and we call it Excellence in Flight which has three supporting pillars; Service Excellence, Operational Excellence, and Innovative Excellence.

Mr. Kim added that it chose the BoeingSM mobile connectivity service to better suit the in-flight communication needs of its passengers with real-time, high speed internet.

With a fleet of 117 aircraft, Korean Air is one of the world's top 20 airlines and operates almost 400 flights per day to 85 cities in 29 countries. The airline is a founding member of SkyTeam, the global alliances with AeroMexico, Air France, Alitalia, CSA Czech Airlines and Delta Air Lines.
