On February 22nd Korean Air celebrated the delivery of its first 787-9 Dreamliner at a ceremony held at the aircraft manufacturer Boeing’s South Carolina assembly site.
The airline is scheduled to introduce five 787-9 Dreamliners to its fleet this year, with another five joining the fleet by 2019.
Korean Air is scheduled to launch domestic flights between Seoul’s Gimpo Airport and JeJu for a month as part of the required certification period, before launching long-haul international routes from Seoul’s Incheon Airport to Toronto, Madrid, and Zurich later this year.
“The 787 Dreamliner will be a key member of Korean Air’s fleet as we continue to introduce next-generation airplanes to our customers” said Walter Cho, President of Korean Air. “The aircraft is fuel efficient, quiet, has lower operating costs and it’s spacious and very elegant. The cabin features are impressive and will ensure maximum comfort for Korean Air’s passengers.”
