Korean Air to keep passengers' winter coats
In winter, travelers heading to Southeast Asian countries and other warm climate destinations are weighed down with the extra baggage of the overcoats they wear to Incheon International Airport. In most cases, they have no choice but to carry them in a suitcase for the whole journey. But not anymore for those who fly with Korean Air.
The country’s largest flagship carrier said Thursday that it will open a cloakroom on the third floor of the passenger terminal near check-in counter A on Dec. 1.
The service will be provided through Feb. 29, 2012. The coat room will be operated by Hanjin Logistics and can store up to 3,000 coats.
Korean Air passengers will be able to check in their overcoats or jumpers and jackets, one per person, from 4:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. for up to five days free of charge. After five days, customers will be charged 2,500 won per day.
“We expect travelers heading to Southeast Asia, Guam, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and other warm countries will take advantage of the cloakroom. We think at least 25,000 customers will benefit from this new service,” a Korean Air spokesman said.
