Korean Air aims to start using its eco-friendly plane in April

Korean Air said Sunday it will start operating its Air Bus A330-300 airplane, an environmentally friendly unit that the company purchased on Saturday, from April 2.

The unit will be used on high-demand routes, including Brisbane and Sydney in Australia, and nations in Southeast Asia such as Singapore.

According to Korean Air, the A330-300 has 272 seats and offers a maximum flying distance of 9,450 kilometers (5,871 miles).

The company currently has 18 A330-300s and will add two more by the end of this year.

The plane is considered one of the most fuel-efficient airplanes in the industry. The company said it will have 19 additional new airplanes this year, including four B747-8Is, six B777-300ERs and three A330-300s.
