Delta Airlines<.>, pending final review by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said in an announcement in early December that Korean Air has made significant improvements in all areas of flight Operations and that this reflects that Korean Air has met all applicable International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) safety standards. According to the same announcement, the favorable for Korean Air findings are attributed to improved flight training and simulator programs, enhanced language training, new safety programs, fleet rationalization and standardization actions, a new state-of-the-art automated flight planning and dispatch capability, improved intra-theater communications capabilities, and adaptation of an enhanced risk management program.
