Korean Air has announced the commencement of an A380 service between Seoul Incheon Airport and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport.
As from March 30th 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 per cent.
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.
