Korean Air likely to operate in Pakistan (Daily Times (Pakistan))
A three-member delegation of the Korean Air, led by its Managing Vice President Song Bo, called on Trade and Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) SM Muneer at his office on Thursday and said that the airline is seriously considering making a comeback to Pakistan.
The Korean delegation apprised the TDAP CEO that the purpose of its visit was to study the possibility/feasibility of the Korean Air’s operation in the future, including exploration of various avenues of cooperation between Korea and Pakistan.
SM Muneer briefed the Korean Air’s delegation about the trade potential between Pakistan and Korea. He explained that if airline would open up its operations from Pakistan, it certainly gets huge business, as Pakistan is exporting fresh fruits and seafood products to far eastern countries and the businessmen would use Korean Air as their carrier for export of perishable items.
He said that a huge vacuum of air cargo and passenger flights to far eastern countries has been created in Pakistan and the Korean Air should exploit this great opportunity of aviation business.
Song Bo said on the occasion that they are impressed with the trade activities in Pakistan and he would inform the top management of the airline about the business opportunities in Pakistan. Operating direct flight of Korean Air from Pakistan would not only increase Pakistan’s exports to Korea but also boost Korean exports of perishable products to Pakistan and far eastern markets, he added.
