Korean Air has taken delivery of its 30th Boeing 777, a 777-300ER, and its first Next-Generation 737-900ER. The latter marks the airline's first 737 with the new Boeing Sky Interior.

"Korean Air is focused on exceeding our customers' expectations," said Kim Sung Gab, Delivery Team Leader & Managing VP, Korean Air. "The enhancements in passenger comfort and efficiency of these new airplanes, in addition to Boeing's new Sky Interior, will create a more comfortable flying experience that compliments Korean Air's vision of 'Excellence in Flight.'"

The Boeing 737-900ER is the newest member of the Next-Generation 737 airplane family and has the highest capacity with longest-range in Boeing's single-aisle fleet. The advanced-technology wing design helps increase fuel capacity.

Korean Air plans to introduce its first 737-900ER with the innovative Boeing Sky Interior to passengers on their Osaka Kansai and Tokyo Haneda routes later this year. The carrier will receive a second Boeing 737-900ER this week.

The 737 Boeing Sky Interior features a new cabin with different lighting schemes ranging from a soft sky blue to a calm and relaxing pallet of sunset colors. The innovative change in cabin lighting uses brighter LED (light emitting diode) lights that last 10 times longer than the previous standard of lights.

The Paris Air Show is being held this week at Le Bourget near the French capital, Paris.
