Korean Air has added the ninth Airbus A380 aircraft to its fleet.

The ninth A380 is now going through the required tests in Korea before it makes its debut flight to Atlanta on 6 July 2014.

Korean Air operates the A380 on Incheon-Los Angeles and Incheon-New York fourteen flights a week each and Incheon-Paris seven flights a week.

Commencing 6 July the carrier will also operate the A380 on the Incheon-Atlanta route three flights a week.

Configured in a three-class layout with just 407 seats in total, Korean Airs A380 has 301 seats in economy class a pitch of 34 inches.

94 fully flat Prestige Sleeper seats are located on the upper deck of the A380 in Prestige Class (business class) providing an experience that can be likened to a business class only aircraft.

12 First Class Kosmo Suites are located in the front of the lower deck and provide passengers with independent space, whilst also ensuring total privacy.

Korean Airs Duty Free Showcase is located at the back of the lower deck and features a variety of duty-free products with a dedicated cabin crew member on hand to assist and advise passengers with all their shopping needs.

The very relaxing Celestial Bar is a dedicated area of the A380 aircraft where passengers can sample Korean Airs exclusive cocktails during their flight. Six cocktails feature at the bar, chosen following a special cocktail tasting event recently carried out by the airline for VIP customers.

Other bars are located on each floor at the front of the aircraft by the Prestige and First Class cabins and passengers can serve themselves and have some time away from their seat.

Korean Air will finalize the delivery of its tenth A380 being delivered later this month - three years after the first A380 was introduced into Korean Air service in June 2011.
