Our heart is our history. Our passion is our future!


The heart of Korita Aviation lies in the foundation of Direct Air Flow in 1992, when Mr. John Reidy and Mrs. Mieke Bougie founded Direct Air Flow as a trading company specialised in aviation catering equipment.

Direct Air Flow's success in supplying aviation and rail catering equipment created a demand for an 'own' brand of new catering equipment for the rail and aviation sectors. Airlines notified us of their needs for shorter lead times and high-quality new equipment. Our founders recognised that there was a space in this market for a 'new' quality galley insert manufacturer who could deliver quality galley inserts within optimum manufacturing timescales. This led to the establishment of Korita Aviation in Suzhou, PR China in the year 2006.

Since the foundation of Korita Aviation in 2006, an exciting period has been witnessed by our employees and customers alike:

CAAC and CAAS certification was received in 2008, followed by EASA, FAA certification in 2009, Boeing approval in 2012, and COMAC approval in 2015. To further support our airline customers, Korita Aviation officially entered the official start-up of the ‘Supplier’s Qualification Assessment’ with Airbus in September 2017. In October 2019, Korita Aviation was selected by Airbus as an official supplier of NELI, all programs: A320/A330/A380/A350.

Korita Aviation is now recognised as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of aviation and rail catering equipment, dedicated to delivering excellent quality aviation and rail catering equipment worldwide. We are: 

Customer focused people.
Designing for purpose.    
Delivering durability in service.
