Korean Air is providing more active support for the successful hosting of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games. The company transported snow tracks, which are the essential equipment for test events of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games, at no cost, through a KE286 freighter that left Toronto Pearson International Airport on Dec. 24 and arrived at Incheon International Airport on Dec. 25.

Korean Air transported a total of 42 snow tracks, enough for nine tractors. The total weight came to about 16 tons and the transportation cost reached nearly 70 million won (US$59,676).

At first, the snow tracks were supposed to be brought to Korea by ship in early February next year. As they arrived early by cargo plane, however, tractors equipped with the snow tracks will be completely assembled in the middle of January. Accordingly, the company has laid the foundation stone of the successful hosting of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

Korean Air will also transport 3 tons of equipment, including injection bars and stargate systems, from Austria and Germany in January next year, continuously making efforts to successfully host the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games as a global airline.
