Korean expands ambassador service

27 Oct 2008 by Mark Caswell

Passengers on
Korean Air flights bound for London, Amsterdam, Madrid, Paris and Incheon can
now get in-flight information on museums and artworks from the carrier’s Flying
Art Ambassadors.

The 109 Ambassador
flight attendants were chosen from 500 candidates, and include employees with degrees in art and culture, and museum and
curator experience. They have all undergone educational training on the
museums, artwork and artists in the relevant destinations, including a two-day
workshop during October.

The service was
launched on Paris-bound flights in March, and has now been extended to other
European destinations, with New York, Vienna, St Petersburg and Rome to follow early next
year. 

The move follows Air
New Zealand’s decision to include in-flight
concierges on selected long-haul routes earlier this year – see online news December 18,
2007
