With farms in South Korea having to destroy millions of chickens because of bird flu, Asiana Airlines has flown in 20 tons of eggs to help stabilize the supply and therefore the price of eggs.
Prices have risen sharply as farms culled nearly 22 million birds since late November to stop the highly pathogenic H5N8 avian influenza.
Asiana says the eggs were brought on a flight from Chicago to Incheon.
The airline late last year also took part in the global vaccine effort, sending a plane to Russia carrying doses of the Russian vaccine, Sputnik 5, that were produced in Korea on consignment.
Those doses were successfully transported at extremely low temperatures around minus 20 degrees Celsius.
