The Asiana women employees at the VIP Lounge at Gimpo Airport (Domestic Line) are confirmedly ‘Diplomat-friendly and do their best to see to it that the diplomats are comfortable in an environment where not everyone speaks the English language, let alone the language of their own country. The ambassadors and their spouses using the Asiana VIP Lounge and the Protocol Office are very appreciative of the devoted service of the Asiana Airlines personnel.
At the Protocol Office of the Gimpo Airport, which is reserved exclusively for the VVIP guests (such as political leaders, cabinet ministers and gubernatorial and mayoral leaders), The Korea Post frequently encounters with the Korean VVIP, such as Co-Chairman Ahn Cheol-soo of the New Politics Alliance for Democracy, and each time ask them if they would wish to meet the ambassadors who happen to use the same Protocol Office. They are more than glad to meet them.
On April 4, 2014, The Korea Post's happy encounter at the Protocol Office was Mayor Kang Un-tae of the Gwangju Metropolitan City (12th from left) who was also on his way to Gwangju as the ambassadors and their spouses that day who were flying the same plane to attend the 2014 Yeongam Wangin Culture Festival in Yeongam near Gwangju. Ambassador Dusan Bella of the Slovak Republic (dean of the visiting members of the Seoul Diplomatic Corps from the precedence of the date of accreditation to Korea that day) and Mrs. Bella were extra happy as they and Mayor Kang were already old friends.
