Korean Air showed off the flagship of its fleet to the Czech public, a wide-body, double-deck aircraft with four engines. The Airbus 380 carried passengers on the regularly scheduled Seoul – Prague link. This evening, it will return to Seoul carrying both regular passengers and 160 businessmen who took part in the CeBIT international trade fair in Hannover, Germany.

Hundreds of spectators watched, along with dozens of reporters and business partners as the Korean Air Airbus 380 came in for a landing at Václav Havel Airport Prague. Passengers flying the Seoul–Prague–Seoul line today were able to exchange their usual Airbus 330-200 seating 235 people for a chance to try out the Airbus 380, dubbed the “King of the Heavens”. Korean Air took advantage of a commercial flight to present this generously designed aircraft to the Czech public.

Letiště Praha, the operator of Václav Havel Airport Prague, an international airport, has been making gradual modifications to accommodate Category F aircraft, including the A380 and Boeing 747-8. ”Since autumn of last year we have had certification from the Civil Aviation Bureau for the regular operation of Category F aircraft,” says Jiří Pos, Director of Letiště Praha, in explaining the airport’s readiness for the world’s largest aircraft. He continued: “We have a tender currently in the works for the construction and technological modification of Stand 14 at Pier B to handle the largest aircraft, offering passengers the highest level of comfort and keeping Václav Havel Airport Prague competitive in this area.”    

Korean Air, one of the world’s leading airlines, flies the Prague–Seoul route four times per week, as does Czech Airlines, which the South Korean airline has owned a 44% share in since last year. With its fleet of 155 modern aircraft and top employees, the carrier offers reliable services and products much appreciated by its customers. With the launch of Airbus A380 by Korean Ain in 2011, notions about air took a significant turn in the direction of luxury airborne hotels. Currently, Korean Air operates 8 A380 aircraft designed for three passenger classes, offering a total of 407 seats, the lowest such number of any carrier flying A380s. Korean Air’s A380 is outfitted with the latest technology. The lower deck features 12 super luxury Kosmo Suites in First Class and 301 seats in Economy Class. The upper deck is home to 94 Prestige Sleeper (Business Class) seats which can fold out to 180°. The aircraft also boasts unique value-added services such as the first on-board “Duty Free” shop in the world plus three bars and lounges offering out-of-the-ordinary, pleasant experiences during the journey.
