Skytrax: Korean Air has become a 5-star airline

Korean Air gained worldwide recognition by being certified yesterday as a 5-star airline by the international agency Skytrax. Korean Air thus joins 10 other international airlines in this exclusive 5-star group:

  • Qatar Airways;
  • All Nippon Airways;
  • Asiana Airlines;
  • Cathay Pacific Airways;
  • EVA Air;
  • Garuda Indonesia;
  • Hainan Airlines;
  • Japan Airlines;
  • Lufthansa;
  • Singapore Airlines.
Skytrax completed its Korean Air audit assessments in February 2020 before the spread of the Covid virus, postponing this important announcement.

A key factor in granting this 5-star airline status is the high, continuous level of quality of the products offered on board the aircraft, combined with a very efficient and sincere service of the staff. Korean Air operates from Seoul Incheon International Airport, one of the newest and most advanced airport facilities in the world. The company offers a high level of automation for check-in and drop-bags, fast and efficient baggage delivery and priority handling systems, in addition to easy flight connections between SkyTeam partners. In addition, Korean Air has a modern fleet of Airbus and Boeing aircraft.

Introduced in 1999, Airline Star Rating is an international airline rating system based on product quality, service standards and personnel. Star ratings of airlines are recognized as a global aviation standard. This rating program is managed by the international air transport rating agency, Skytrax.
