Cho Yang-ho (Hangul: 조양호; sometimes written Y. H. Cho; 8 March 1949 – 8 April 2019) was a South Korean businessman who was the chairman and chief executive officer of Korean Air, chairman of the Hanjin Group, and a founding member of SkyTeam alliance.

Cho was the son of Cho Choong-hoon [ko], the founder of Hanjin Group and head of Korean Air.

Cho was married, with one son and two daughters: Cho Won-tae, Cho Hyun-ah (also known by the English name Heather Cho), and Cho Hyeon-min. All three official children are also graduates of the University of Southern California. His daughter, Cho Hyun-ah, ran the company's hotel division. She was the subject of a December 2014 news report alleging that she physically struck crew members, ordered a crew member to kneel and beg for forgiveness, and ordered a Korean Air Lines plane to return to the gate to force a flight attendant off the plane because a packet of macadamia nuts was served to her in a bag rather than on a plate. She was forced to resign after the incident and was sentenced to one year imprisonment without probation in February 2015. She was released after serving 3 months.

On 7 April 2019, Cho died at a Los Angeles hospital in the U.S. state of California, at the age of 70

In addition to his corporate responsibilities, Cho was elected vice-chairman of The Federation of Korean Industries (FKI) in 1996, and held the title of honorary consul-general to Ireland in the Republic of Korea from 1995 until his death in 2019.

In March 2019, under the support of NPS, he was ousted from the board by shareholders amid various scandals involving him and his family members.
