Korean Air has finalised an order with Boeing for 32 new aircraft.
The airline initially signed a deal for 30 B737 MAX aircraft and two additional B777-300ERs during this year’s Paris Air Show.
The deal, which is valued at nearly US$4 billion at current list prices, has now been confirmed, and includes options for four additional B737 MAXs.
“Korean Air is a valued Boeing customer and today’s order is the culmination of our longstanding partnership that spans over four decades,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes’ president & CEO, Ray Conner. “I am confident these new airplanes will play an important role in Korean Air’s fleet modernisation program for many years to come.”
Korean Air currently operates a fleet of 140 passenger aircraft and has outstanding orders for a further 133. The new B737 MAXs will become a new model in the airline’s fleet, while B777-300ERs add to 17 aircraft already operated by Korean Air.
