Korean Air introduced a new B777-300ER aircraft from Boeing of the U.S. on May 14. The aircraft is the 200th Boeing-made aircraft that Korean Air has introduced.
The B777-300ER plane alone is the 25th aircraft and the largest number of operational aircraft owned by Korean Air.
Starting with the B707-3B5C aircraft in 1971, Korean Air has introduced a total of 200 Boeing aircraft over the past 48 years. Korean Air currently has 119 Boeing aircraft.
The B777-300ER aircraft, which was introduced this time, began operations on the Incheon-Fukuoka route by wrapping the phrase "200th AIRCRAFT" in front of the fuselage marking the 200th Boeing aircraft, and will also be deployed in San Francisco, Osaka and Hanoi routes.
The B777-300ER aircraft, first introduced in 2009 by Korean Air in Korea, is a 291-seat medium-sized aircraft, which reduces carbon dioxide emissions by about 26 percent and reduces noise levels further than conventional aircraft due to improved fuel efficiency.
It also offers a more comfortable cabin atmosphere with up to 21 types of LED color lighting, depending on flight stage and in-flight service stage.
Meanwhile, Korean Air currently operates in 124 cities in 44 countries with 168 aircraft, including 119 Boeing planes and 49 Airbus planes.
