Seoul-based Asiana Airlines has been ordered by Korean authorities to suspend its flights to San Francisco International Airport (SFO) for a 45-day period as a penalty for the July 6, 2013 crash of a Boeing 777-200ER at that airport.
A review panel from South Korea’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MLIT) said the carrier must complete the suspension period within six months, so it does not have to begin it immediately. Asiana has 15 days to decide if it will appeal the ruling, and the airline has indicated it will do so.
Korean authorities told local media that a 90-day suspension could have been imposed, but the duration was cut due to the actions of the crew in assisting passengers after the crash.
