* Korean has a system of so called flight- and home-bases for expats. Every pilot can select a flight base which is the base where his 9 days leave starts. This can be any Airport in the world, with the only restriction that Korean has to have it as a destination in its extensive intercontinental network twice a week for a passenger flight. These 9 days can be increased with 2 days of the annual leave. This means that the monthly leave can be 9 + 2 + 3 = 14 days in a row from an airport close to hometown. On top of that Korean has home- bases, which is a base that a pilot can select during his working cyclus that he will frequent more than average, on request and can be the same base as his flight base.... But this is naturally only the case if his aircraft type has that airport in her network.

KAL operates domestically in South Korea serving 20 cities within the country, as well as international regional flights. Destinations include Busan, Jeju, Yeosu, Pohang, Ulsan.
