SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA – Korean Air organized a Family Day event for employees and their families from May 4-6 at its headquarters in Seoul. The annual event, which began in 2019, resumed last year after a hiatus due to the pandemic.

This year’s event was attended by approximately 13,000 airline employees and their family members, including Delta Air Lines employees co-located at the Korean Air headquarters through the two airlines’ joint venture partnership.

The hangar-converted-theme park offered an array of activities and stations that participants could enjoy such as air bounce castles, hands-on drone flight experience, photo booths, balloon art, face painting and food trucks.

The event also featured various company-related programs such as an exhibition of the airline’s former cabin crew uniforms; Q&A sessions with cabin crew, pilots, and maintenance staff; interactive First and Prestige Class seat mockups; and a joint venture booth featuring Delta Air Line’s premium long-haul products. In addition, the Korean Air Jumbos volleyball team – winners of both season and postseason championship titles for four consecutive years – signed autographs and distributed championship hats.

The tours of the airline’s latest addition, the A321neo, drew significant interest. Marking the airline’s 100th aircraft from Airbus, this model was showcased for participants to explore, featuring highlights like the lie-flat prestige seats and Airbus’s signature Airspace interior.

“It was a special day to be able to show my child where I work, and filled me with so much pride.” said Arim Lee, assistant manager from the Maintenance Department at Korean Air. “Seeing my son’s eyes light up as he explored the plane was heartwarming. It’s more than just sharing my workplace; it’s about showing them the passion and dedication behind every flight we operate.”

This event was designed to give families a better view of their loved ones’ work environments to foster a deeper understanding and enhance their sense of connection to the company,” said Jongheon Sim, Vice President and Chief Communications Officer, at Korean Air. “We believe the airline will continue to improve policies that support a family-friendly work culture where professional and family life are compatible.”

Korean Air operates various welfare programs for employees and their families, including enrollment gifts to prospective elementary school students as well as gift certificates for Children’s Day and Christmas. It also hosts orientation sessions for college-bound students, events for employees’ families along with special flight tickets for parents.
