Technological developments make the A380 more cost efficient by reducing the cost per seat by approximately 15%. In a mono-class configuration, the aircraft is capable of carrying up to 800 passengers.

To date, Korean Air and fifteen other carriers have ordered a total of 159 passenger and cargo A380s.

Korean Air signed a contract for five firm orders of the A380s in October 2003. The airline plans to configure its First and Prestige (business) classes with enhanced service options while also ensuring that Economy class is more spacious and convenient to meet the growing needs of todays customers.

The 380s will be added to Korean Airs fleet in early 2008 and used on high traffic, long-haul routes.
