Asiana Airlines, South Korea’s second-largest carrier by market cap, has supplied multimedia equipment for classrooms in a Chinese primary school and provided lessons on what it is like to become a flight attendant, according to the firm Wednesday.
The classroom equipment, including 10 computers, found its way on Tuesday to Wenhua Street Primary School, located in the northeastern Inner Mongolia autonomous region in China. Some 900 students are expected to benefit from the program, according to Asiana Airlines.

Also Tuesday, students there were able to garner hands-on experience as a flight attendant.
The move is a part of Asiana Airline’s outreach program in China that started in June 2012. Asiana Airlines has supplied a total 1.1 billion won ($970,000) worth of classroom equipment that is available to over 30,000 local students at 28 schools, according to the firm.
