Following Korean Air’s move to add a penalty for any international passenger to cancel their travel after boarding their flight, fellow South Korean-based Asiana Airline added its own set of new penalties for such situation.

Asiana Airlines will match the additional fees with its own – about KRW 300000 (USD $300), as both carriers have seen a spate of customers requesting refunds after checking in for their flights. Korean Air reported in 2018 it saw 35 cases, with the incident with the fans of the Kpop group Wanna One at Hong Kong Airport making it on global news.

While other Kpop fans looking to take their pictures with idols has gained headlines, other cases that could warrant these fees include a last minute hesitation to go on with the flight and personal emergencies.
