Korean Air has changed the model type of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner that it was to introduce next year, to the more fuel efficient Boeing 787-900. Ten 787s are scheduled to be delivered to the airline through 2016.

The 787 is made of carbon composite material allowing passengers to enjoy a quieter, more comfortable and environmentally-friendly flight.

Starting last year, Korean Air began introducing six new Airbus A330-200s, an aircraft somewhat equivalent to the Boeing 787, to minimize any affect the airline may have due to delays in the delivery of the 787.

Korean Air has also decided to purchase two Boeing 747-8F freighters rather than lease them.

The maximum range of the 747-8F is 8130km and it can carry 19% (134 tons) more than the existing 747-400Fs. Korean Air will be introducing seven B747-8Fs through 2015.
