Ticket Services / Prepaid Ticket Advice

   Korean Air offers a PTA (Prepaid Ticket Advice) service that allows you to pay the air fare in advance for a passenger who lives in a different region, so that he/she can receive the ticket without making payment.

PTA request should be made at least 48 hours prior to departure of the passenger’s flight.
