Korean Air Introduces The A380 On Paris Route
|Korean Air has announced the commencement of an A380 service between Seoul Incheon Airport and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport.|
As from 30 March 2014, Korean Air's A380 which is configured with 407 seats, replaced the B777-300 formerly used on the route, which seated 291 passengers; thus increasing the total capacity on the route by 40%.
Flight number KE901 will depart from Seoul/Incheon at 13:05 daily and arrive in Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport at 18:20 the same day. The return flight, KE902, will depart Paris daily at 21:00 and arrive in Seoul/Incheon at 14:50 the following day.
Korean Air's three-class layout of just 407 seats in total, is the lowest configuration of any A380 operator so far. The airline's double-decker A380s feature cutting-edge amenities, with twelve ultra luxurious First Class Kosmo Suites and 301 Economy Class seats on the main lower deck and 94 fully lie-flat Prestige Sleeper seats in Prestige Class (business class) on the upper deck. In addition, the aircraft has unique in-flight facilities, such as the world's first 'Duty Free Showcase' and a new onboard bar and lounge area, offering a brand new and highly enjoyable in-flight shopping and relaxation experience.
Currently, Korean Air operates eight A380 aircraft with two more joining the fleet by the end of this year.
