Boeing and Korean Air Aerospace Division signed a memorandum of understanding on Oct. 4 to broaden their defense collaboration to include rotorcraft, fixed-wing aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles and military aircraft maintenance.
“We see potential for new collaboration by bringing together KAL’s leading-edge capabilities and Boeing’s history of innovation to address expanding global defense and security requirements,” said Mark Kronenberg, vice president of International Business Development for Boeing Defense, Space & Security.
KAL-ASD supplies parts for many of Boeing’s commercial airplane programs, including the 787 Dreamliner and 747-8.
“Strengthening our partnership with a global aerospace and defense company like Boeing supports Korean Air’s goal to become Asia’s largest aerospace company,” said June Chul Choi, senior vice president and head of KAL-ASD.
