The agreements were signed during a working visit to Seoul, South Korea and is an important pillar of Vienna Airport’s Asian strategy, which will strengthen the airport’s position as a key air cargo hub for transporting goods between Asia and Europe.

The common objective is to build a partnership and share expertise in areas relevant to air cargo such as handling processes and logistics systems.

Julian Jäger, Joint CEO and COO of Flughafen Wien, said: “Korean Air’s decision to increasingly operate cargo flights to Vienna underlines the attractiveness of Vienna Airport and strengthens the economic development of our region. The expansion of our infrastructure is a decisive factor in fulfilling the growing demand for global air transport services between Europe and Asia and offering first-class services for the benefit of our customers.”

Korean Air has operated regular services to Vienna Airport since 2004 and will implement joint marketing initiatives and exchange knowledge to strategically target freight forwarders and shippers with customised services.
