Korean Air to Penalise “No-Show” International Passengers

Korean Air will charge penalise customers who miss international flights without giving notice starting in October, the company said today.

The airline imposed so-called no-show charges on domestic flights in October 2008 and has now decided to expand them to international flights after the no-show rate reached 2% of all reservations in 2015.

The penalties will be $120 for flights bound for North America, Europe, the Middle East and Oceania, $70 for flights to Southeast and Southwest Asian and $50 for short flights to countries such as Japan and China.

The existing no-show fine on domestic flights is 8,000 won ($7).
