Korean Air rises to global prominence, claiming second place in AirlineRatings’ 2024 awards and the top spot for long-haul flights in North Asia.

Korean Air has secured second place among the top 25 airlines worldwide in AirlineRatings’ 2024 Airline Excellence Awards, and has been named the Best Long Haul Carrier in North Asia., an Australia-based aviation media, evaluates over 440 airlines on multiple assessment criteria, including safety, product ratings, passenger reviews, fleet age, and environmental commitment. Korean Air was awarded “Cargo Airline of the Year” in 2022 and 2023, and “Best Airline in North Asia” in 2023.

The airline recently accelerated the modernization of its fleet, making significant investment in next-generation aircraft to offer greater passenger comfort and to meet the airline’s sustainability goals. The airline in March signed a contract with Airbus to purchase 33 A350s. In addition to fleet upgrades, Korean Air has implemented advanced safety measures, including rigorous maintenance protocols, crew training programs, and the adoption of cutting-edge technology to monitor and manage flight operations.

The airline also further enhanced its in-flight services by introducing new in-flight menus like its Korean vegan meal, and collaborated with world-renowned sommelier Marc Almert to introduce new wine options across all cabin classes.

“Korean Air just gets better and better with passenger approval ratings. The airline is at the forefront of innovation and it has invested in a young state-of-the-art fleet built around the Boeing 787 and the Airbus A321neos.” said Geoffrey Thomas, Editor-in-Chief at AirlineRatings. “Its rankings reflect the dedication of management and staff to delivering excellence across the airline.”
