The ceremony was attended by Korean Air chairman and CEO Yang Ho Cho, Airbus president and CEO Tom Enders and EADS CEO Louis Gallois. “The A380 has proven to be a game changer, setting new standards for comfort, economic efficiency and respect for the environment,” Enders said. “We are confident that the A380 will play a key role in enabling Korean Air to further strengthen its position as one of the world’s great airlines,”
Korean has ordered a total of 10 A380s, with the airline initially planning to operate the aircraft from its Seoul base to a variety of Asian destinations and eventually, non-stop flights to North America and Europe. The airline has specified a 407 passenger layout for their A380s, separated into three classes equipped with a duty free showcase area, bar and lounge.
