In the article "KAL faces new penalties after two new incidents", it was stated that Korean Air (KAL) "was banned last year from flying to Cheju" (Flight International, 24-30 March). The penalty imposed by the South Korean Government on KAL after a series of landing incidents in 1998 included a 20% reduction in services to Cheju. This was part of a six-month ban imposed on 138 KAL domestic services. The ban was expected to cost the airline $30 million in revenue. Normal services to Cheju were reinstated in February, as pointed out in the article.
