Asiana Agrees To DOT Fine For SFO Accident Response Problems
Asiana Airlines has agreed to pay a $500,000 fine for its lackluster response following the crash of one of its Boeing 777s at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) last July — a response that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) determined was also illegal.
DOT charged Asiana with failing to implement its post-accident family response plan required by the Foreign Air Carrier Family Support Act of 1997. DOT’s charges and the fine are the first under the statute.
