Korean Air unveils new premium skincare amenity kit

Korean Air, the flag carrier of South Korea, is set to begin offering deluxe amenity kits to premium passengers flying in its first and business class cabins, reports the Korea Times.

Beginning in May, Korean Air will furnish a luxury skincare kit made by global cosmetic brand DAVI to its premium cabins. The new amenity was announced at a press conference at the Hyatt Regency Incheon, with Korean Air senior vice president Heather Cho and DAVI chairman Carlo Mondavi on hand to unveil the kit.

"We are delighted to provide our customers with DAVI's revolutionary cosmetic product," Cho said during the press conference. "The provision of the world-class amenity skincare kit will further improve our image as one of the world's premier airlines. Korean Air will continue to make every effort to innovate and upgrade customer services."

According to the source, DAVI's products are manufactured using a blend of fermented grape extracts. These raw materials imbue the skincare line with antioxidants known as resveratrol and polyphenols, which reportedly work to protect users against the negative effects of aging on the skin.

"We are greatly honored to be the luxury amenity provider for Korean Air," said Mondavi. "We would like to help the airline set standards in the air and deliver the best in-flight experience known in the business to its passengers. DAVI looks forward to making this partnership one of the finest in the industry."

The kit will be made available to first and business class passengers on Korean Air's long-haul routes, said the source. American travelers flying on Korean Air will have plenty of opportunities to take advantage of the new amenity, as the carrier operates passenger service to an array of cities in the U.S. Korean Air destinations in the United States include Atlanta, Chicago-O'Hare, Dallas, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York-JFK, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington, D.C. In addition, Korean Air operates cargo flights to Miami. Korean Air also partners with several American carriers, including Alaska Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines and Delta Air Lines.

At the same press conference touting the new DAVI skincare kits, Korean Air also announced that it will begin offering new menu items in June. New dishes featured on the menu will include low-calorie salmon salad and noodles.
