Korean Air plans to add a total of 30 new 787 Dreamliner airplanes to its fleet. The airline committed to purchase ten new Boeing 787-10s and ten additional 787-9 airplanes during the second day at the Paris Air Show 2019. Furthermore, Korea’s flag carrier will lease another ten Boeing 787-10s from Air Lease Corporation (ALC).
The airline’s brand new 787-10 will complement its current long-haul fleet of Boeing 747-8, 777 and 787-9 airplanes. Besides the Boeing aircraft, the carrier operates Airbus A330 and A380 widebody jets on longer routes. On shorter flights, the carrier relies on Airbus A220 jets, as well as Boeing 737 aircraft. Its cargo division operates an all-Boeing cargo fleet of 747-400, 747-8 and 777 freighters.
