Korean Air selected as the worlds most innovative airlines by airline

first_img“Product and service innovations are a way for an airline to be noticed in a cluttered marketplace,” says Raymond Kollau, founder of airlinetrends.com. “It’s about differentiation, as fierce competition is forcing airlines to think of ways to stand out. At airlinetrends.com we are continuously on the lookout for innovative products and services launched by airlines around the world as a response to industry and consumer trends. The ‘2012 World’s Most Innovative Airlines’ ranking is based on our expert opinion of how well airlines around the world are responding to industry trends and changing consumer behavior. The airlines that have made it to our list do not necessarily feature on the various ‘best airlines in the world’ surveys that are published regularly. Instead, we aimed to select 10 airlines that have come up with interesting innovations in the past year, be it as part of a company culture of continuous innovation, a strategy to challenge the industry status quo, or as part of efforts to catch up after years of underinvestment.”Continues Kollau, “We believe each of the 10 airlines featured in our 2012 list stood out out from the crowd in the past year. For example, the ranking of airlines such as British Airways and Delta Air Lines is based on multi-billion dollar upgrade programs launched after years of underinvestment, while Korean Air and TAM from Brazil have introduced new cabins and many innovative service amenities in order to make their mark on the world stage. Qatar Airways and All Nippon Airways, meanwhile, are combining their rapid expansion with delivering a high-quality passenger experience, while KLM and AirAsia are pioneering innovative uses of social media. Tech-savvy Virgin America is at the forefront of developments in in-flight entertainment and connectivity, and Latvian-based airBaltic consistently comes up with innovative ancillary products.”The 2012 edition of “The World’s Most Innovative Airlines” report is available at www.airlinetrends.com. Korean Air tops airlinetrends.com’s 2012 ranking  of the world’s most innovative airlines. The airline has established itself as a major hub carrier for passengers flying between Asia and North America via Seoul Incheon Airport, which itself is regarded as the best airport in the world. Recent product and service innovations launched by Korean Air include a duty free store, branded bar areas and women-only bathrooms on board its flagship A380s, while the airline offers thoughtful amenities such as a coat storage service and a women-only lounge at Incheon Airport. Korean Air also operates its own organic farm at South Korea’s Jeju island, using the produce for its in-flight meals.In second place comes British Airways, which after several difficult years has regained its footing with a host of innovative programs now in motion as part of a GBP 5 billion investment program. Overall, it will see BA’s customers benefitting from new aircraft, updated cabins, and an array of service improvements such as iPad-equipped cabin crew and ‘height cuisine’ catering. In third place is Delta Air Lines, which has undertaken a large number of initiatives to address quality and customer satisfaction as part of a USD 2 billion upgrade program. Recent product and service innovations from Delta include 24/7 assistance via social media, wireless in-flight entertainment, real-time lugagge tracking via mobile phones and an iPad-based ‘media bar’.The top ten list of innovative airlines is completed by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (4th), TAM Linhas Aeréas (5th), Qatar Airways (6th), Virgin America (7th), airBaltic (8th), AirAsia (9th) and All Nippon Airways (10th).
