South Korea’s largest airliner Korean Air Lines Co. Ltd has partnered with the US aerospace giant Boeing to cooperate on technology in upgrading the CH-47 Chinook helicopter, Yonhap reports.

The memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the partnership was signed during the on-going Seoul International Aerospace & Defense Exhibition (ADEX) 2017 this week, Korean Air said in a statement.

Under the agreement, both the firms are expected to join the bid to upgrade the American-made helicopters operated by the Korean military and to advance to overseas markets to win other upgrade projects, the statement said.

South Korea's Army and Air Force currently operate the American twin-engine, tandem-rotor, heavy-lift helicopter for various missions, including search and rescue operations.
