Korean Air is to make its next generation premium seats available on more routes as parts of its ongoing commitment to making air travel more enjoyable for its passengers.

This week, Korean Air increased from three to nine the number of routes offering next generation premium seats, following the scheduled delivery of Boeing 777-300ER and refurbishment of Boeing 777-200ER aircraft.

The new seats will be offered on long-haul business routes to Americas, including Incheon-Los Angeles, Incheon-Washington D.C. and Incheon-Seattle, as well as mid-haul business destinations in China and Southeast Asia, such as Incheon-Beijing, Incheon-Shanghai and Incheon-Hong Kong.

Additionally, flights on the Incheon-Jakarta route featuring the new seats will begin to operate daily starting from the end of this month.

Currently a total of four Korean Air aircraft are equipped with the next generation premium seats; three recently delivered Boeing 777-300ERs and a newly refurbished Boeing 777-200ER. Four more Boeing 777-200ERs are scheduled to enter into service by next March, taking to eight the number of aircraft equipped with the new seats.

The recently launched next generation premium seats, Kosmo Suites (First Class), is the pinnacle of luxurious travel, bringing a touch of nature to the cabin while feature 180 degree lie-flat beds that have been widened by 15.3cm to provide passengers with added comfort.

 Prestige Sleeper (Prestige Class) features 180 degree lie-flat sleepers with 66cm wider pitch than the current Prestige Class seats, offering customers the level of comfort normally reserved for First Class at other carriers.

 Also, an enhanced state-of-the-art AVOD system, offering a 16:9 wide screen and over 60 movies, 40 short features, 300 CDs, 40 games and 15 audiobooks, will deliver a richer entertainment experience to passengers in all classes.

Upon the completion of the second phase of the refurbishment plan by April, 2011, Korean Air will have a fleet of 70 aircraft equipped with state-of-the-art facilities serving its mid and long-haul routes. Also, the airline will eventually operate 96 premium aircraft by 2014 including environmental friendly next generation aircraft scheduled to be delivered from next year, such as 10 Airbus 380s and 10 Boeing 787s.
