Korean Air has deployed its Airbus A380 on the route between Seoul and Paris.
The new service, which commenced on Sunday 30 March 2014, will see the airline operate its 407-seat A380 to the French capital, replacing the 291-seat Boeing 777-300 that previously served to route. This marks a capacity increase of 40%.
Korean Air’s A380 will now depart Seoul’s Incheon International Airport at 1305 daily, arriving at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport at 1820 the same day. The return flight will then leave Paris at 2100, getting back into Seoul at 1450 the following day.
Korean Air’s A380 has the fewest seats of any operating in the skies today, with just 407 in three classes, including an entire upper deck dedicated to business class.
Korean Air currently operates eight A380s, including double daily flights to New York and Los Angeles.
