As part of its celebrations to mark the 40th anniversary of the airline, Korean Air will showcase the evolution of its flight attendant’s uniform designs over the decades. Between 16 March and 16 April, a group of 17 flight attendants wearing the various uniforms will greet and serve passengers on board a number of international and domestic routes. Privatised from state-run Korean Air Lines on 1 March 1969, Korean Air started with just eight small airplanes and was a practically unknown regional carrier. Forty years later, Korean Air operates a fleet of 130 aircraft to 116 destinations in 39 countries around the world and is the world’s largest air cargo carrier. The carrier has carried over 24.8 million tonnes of cargo to date and forecasts its annual volumes will grow from 1.5 million tonnes in 2008 to 2.27 million tonnes by 2019.
