Founded in 1969, Korean Air is the national flag carrier for South Korea, operating scheduled flights to 129 cities in 46 countries worldwide, including 12 cities in Korea. Korean Air operates a modern fleet, comprising over 150 aircraft, ranging from the Boeing 737-800 to the Airbus 380.
The airline was the founding member of SkyTeam, the global airline alliance, and prides itself on its ‘excellence in flight,’ and is well recognised for being a leader in the aviation industry.
Korean Air is rated amongst the top 20 airlines in the world in terms of passengers carried and has won numerous awards. Korean Air is a preferred career choice for pilots due to the pay conditions, commuting, roster and the professional operation of the airline. There are over 400 expatriate pilots on contract with Korean Air, providing a large and supportive expatriate network.
As your operating base, your home in Seoul is the Grand Hyatt Incheon, the five-star accommodation provided to all expatriate flight crew by Korean Air – located only three minutes from the international airport and close to downtown Seoul.
I have been on contract with Rishworth Aviation since 1999 when I joined as a B777 Captain flying for Korean Air. I remain in this position and for the last 5 years I also have been working as an Auditor in the Flight Operation Quality Assurance Department. Prior to this I flew for more than 21 years with Aeroflot, progressing from First Officer on a turboprop to wide body jet Captain whilst also holding management positions. I look forward to working with you.

Flying the Boeing 777 for Korean Air is a most enjoyable and satisfying way to earn a living. Rishworth acts professionally and when any contractual issues arise they are dealt with promptly and effectively. I highly recommend Rishworth.
