The South Korean government launched a special inspection of the country’s largest flag carrier, Korean Air Lines, on August 6, one day after one of the airline’s 737-900s overran a runway upon arrival at Japan’s Niigata Prefecture Airport (RJSN). The special safety inspection is expected to last three weeks.
