The inauguration flight to South Korea involved a diplomatic mission with the minister of foreign affairs in charge, and a delegation of Polish entrepreneurs led by the junior minister at the Ministry of Development Tadeusz Kościński, accompanied by vice president of PAIiIZ (Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency) Krzysztof Senger.
