The Inflight Operations Center (IOC) is located in a separate building near the international airport.
Korean Air has decided to hold its crew pre-flight briefing at the Incheon Airport Passenger Terminal 2 until the IOC operations resume.
The Korean Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) notified the airline of the cabin crew confirmed to have been infected by the COVID-19.
Outside China, South Korea now has the most number of confirmed COVID-19 cases.
