South Korea: A free-trade lifeline
KAL embarked on an overhaul of portions of its product portfolio last year, revamping services aimed at perishables, shock-sensitive freight and outsize cargo. This year, the carrier’s offerings for animal transport and hazardous goods are being revamped. According to Rlee, the former should be completed before July, while the later will be tackled in the second half of this year.
By then, airfreight volumes will be ready to once again increase, Korean operators hope.
