大韓航空公司簡介

  大韓航空公司 (KSE: 003490),為天合聯盟的主要伙伴,同時也是代表大韓民國的航空公司。在2001年大韓航空慶祝了韓進集團總裁趙重勛於1969年接管原由政府所有的大韓航空公司(KAL)32周年紀念。韓進集團乃世界上最大的運輸集團之一。

  在私有化之前,大韓航空乃是一個規模較小的地區性航空公司,是一個規模較小的地區性航空公司,它有八架飛機飛往南韓的十個城市和日本的三個城市。雖遭受了長期的財政赤字,大韓航空在被接管後僅僅七個月,就開闢了遍及亞洲的新航線。

  每年,大韓航空公司都有數額可觀的投資,以使飛機現代化。在2000年,公司購進十七架最新型的飛機,包括八架新一代的波音737-800S及三架波音777S。在2001年,大韓航空將購入十四架飛機,其中包括八架波音737- 800S,一架波音747-400,兩架波音747-400S(F),一架波音777-200及兩架A330S。

  大韓航空的優質機艙服務,已得到若幹調查統計的肯定。在2000年,大韓航空的經濟艙服務以及飛行里數獎勵計劃,已連續第二年被“商務旅行者亞洲太平洋”公司(簡稱BTAP)評選為世界第一。除了榮獲這兩項殊榮之外,大韓航空還在提供最佳頭等艙和商務艙服務,座位舒適度,機艙服務,機艙食品,以及向顧客提供全方位服務方面,持續地被列入世界前十名以內。

  大韓航空的優質機艙服務歸功於全體機艙服務員的優良質素,其熱情款待及專業服務均受到世界的認可。為了提高機艙服務,大韓航空投入了資金,改善Premium Class的條件。目前Premium Class的座椅可以完全放平為180度,長83英寸,寬 20英寸。每個座位均有私人間隔,電子調節頭/L/腳的位置,並提供帶有耳機的互動式個人視像系統。這是通過改善硬體設施,提供完美優質服務的又一例證。大韓航空在2000年12月亦已經將“個人消閑系統”及“帶有耳機的視像系統”擴展到經濟艙。

  大韓航空公司的貨運業務,從1997年起,每年均被“國際航空運輸協會(IATA)”評為世界第二大商業航空貨運企業。大韓航空(KAL)是世界上最大的越洋貨物運載企業,於全球的客運航空公司中,擁有最龐大的貨運機隊,併在全球八大機場中擁有貨運站。在2000年10月,大韓航空又於紐約的約翰甘乃迪機場開設貨運站。

大韓航空公司歷史

Korean Air Boeing 747-400

  Korean Air began in 1962 as Korean Air Lines and was owned by the South Korean Government. It replaced the former Korean carrier Korean National Airlines. In 1969 KAL was acquired by the Hanjin Transport Group and became privately owned.

  International flights to Chinese Hong Kong,Chinese Taiwan, and Los Angeles were flown with Boeing 707s until the introduction of Boeing 747 in 1973. In 1973, KAL introduced Boeing 747s on their Pacific routes and started a European service to Paris using the 707 and DC-10. KAL was also Airbus's first customer outside Europe.

  On September 1 1983, Korean Air Lines Flight 007, also known as KAL 007 or KE007, was shot down by Soviet jet interceptors just west of Sakhalin Island. It was carrying 269 passengers and crew at the time, including U.S. congressman Lawrence McDonald. There were no survivors. The Soviet Union stated it did not know the aircraft was civilian and suggested it had entered Soviet airspace as a deliberate provocation to test their response capabilities.

  A blue-top livery was introduced on 1 March 1984 and the airline's name changed to Korean Air from Korean Airlines (However this name is still used in official documents). This livery was first introduced in its Fokker F28. It was designed in corporation between Korean Air and Boeing. In 1990s Korean Air became the first airline to use the new MD-11 to supplement its new fleet of Boeing 747-400s. However, MD-11 did not meet the set performance. As a result, its MD-11s were converted to freighters (in addition to 747 freighters). In 1998, an economic recession hit South Korea, which resulted in large reductions in flights and the number of destinations, including destinations such as Abu Dhabi, Jeddah and Madrid. Currently, Korean Air flies to the most US destinations of any Asian carrier (10 passenger cities in the 50 states). Korean Air currently owns 25% of Okay Airways, a Tianjin, PRC-based airline. Korean Air also has in mind of creating another hub in China. At around 1997, Korean Air founded KAL Catering, the creation caused Korean Air to withdrew its contracts with LSG Sky Chefs and create a new contract with servair.

  In October 2006, Korean Air won top honors in the TIME Readers’ Travel Choice Awards 2006 as the Best First/Business Class Airline and the Best Frequent Flyer Program for its Skypass program. The South Korean flagship carrier beat strong international competitors and gained overwhelming support from the readers of TIME magazine to win these categories for the first time. Korean Air was also ranked second in the Preferred Airline category. TIME Magazine conducted the TIME Readers’ Travel Choice Awards 2006 poll from April 24 to June 25, 2006.

Safety record安全記錄

  From mid 1980s to the late 1990s, Korean Air had safety problems. In fact, the SkyTeam alliance briefly removed Korean Air from its code share program until demonstrable changes were presented to the alliance. The US Federal Aviation Administration, which regulates access to the American airspace, warned the Korean Air management team that its access to the American airports would be restricted unless drastic changes were forthcoming. The U.S. military and the State department advised its personnel to avoid taking Korean Air if other commercial alternatives were available. The competing carrier, Asiana Airlines, benefited tremendously from the dramatic drop in Korean Air's reputation as its safety record was significantly better than Korean Air's.

  Since the turn of the century, Korean Air has demonstrated robust improvements in safety and adopted modern principles of CRM (Crew Resource Management). In October 2006, Korean Air won top honors in the TIME Readers’ Travel Choice Awards an indication that many have regained confidence in South Korea's largest airline.
