The first place winner is awarded with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism’s Minister Prize, and also an opportunity to visit an aircraft production site such as Boeing and Airbus. In addition, the first place artwork is wrapped on the aircraft body and fly all over the world.
Korean Air supports the positive effects of sports in our society, and we are making a continuous effort to support our athletes.
As a part of these efforts, our Chairman Yang Ho Cho acted as the chairman for the bid of 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics and Pyeongchang was ultimately selected as the host city for the 2018 Winter Olympics.
The Korean Air Jumbos Volleyball team was founded in 1969, delighting fans with their high-spirited performances based on their unique teamwork and power. The establishment of the professional volleyball league in 2005 enabled the team to be an integral part of reviving the popularity of volleyball in Korea.
Korean Air consistently supports and promotes prominent athletes. Our athletes have won medals in three consecutive Olympic events — 2000 Sydney Olympics, 2004 Athens Olympics and 2008 Beijing Olympics — which contributed to the rise of Korea’s international standing.
Through the Excellence Program, a select group of Korean artists and high-level athletes are selected. Their international activities are supported by Korean Air in the name and pride of Koreans.
