Korean Air places order for five Airbus A330-200 and two B777-300ERs

4 May 2011

After completing a six-year long fleet enhancement project (see story here), Korean Air has ordered five more Airbus A330-200s and two Boeing B777-300ERs, which will be delivered between 2013 and 2015.

The additional A330-200 order will bring the airline's fleet of this aircraft type to 30. To date, the carrier has a total of 23 A330 aircraft within its fleet: 16 refurbished A330-300s, three enhanced A330-200s and four new A330-200s. In March, the carrier took delivery of its fourth enhanced A330-200 and is scheduled to take delivery of an additional A330-200, ordered back in 2009, between 2013 and 2015. 

Korean Air's new A330-200 order will be used on mid- and long-haul routes.

The carrier also announced orders for two B777-300ERs, of which the carrier currently has 10 in its fleet (six new and four refurbished).
