Korean Air is going to establish a high-tech “Incheon Operations Center (IOC)” on a site near Terminal 2 of Incheon International Airport.
Korean Air will build a state-of-the-art IOC with one basement and three ground floors in an area of 7,230 square meters near Terminal 2 at Incheon International Airport to improve the convenience of flight and cabin attendants.
Korean Air is planning to build an IOC in order to improve convenience by reducing travel distance while increasing efficiency of briefing tasks for flight and cabin crew.
Currently, Korean Air used the briefing room of Incheon Passenger Service Branch in Terminal 2 and the IOC of Inha International Medical Center located in the business complex near Terminal 1 for briefing flight and cabin crew, but there was inconvenience due to the small space or the distance to Terminal 2.
The new IOC plans to create an internal environment by analyzing patterns of use of buildings according to movements and work characteristics in order to make it more comfortable for flight and cabin attendants preparing for flights under the concept of "Smile & Fly," as well as sophisticated designs.
Korean Air plans to complete the construction permit approval and design process by June next year and open the new IOC in April 2022.
