Asiana Airlines announces order for six A380s

Asiana Airlines announced plans to acquire six Airbus A380s (Bloomberg, 06-Jan-2011). The order is valued at USD1780 million at list prices according to a regulatory filing. Deliveries will commence from Apr-2014. The carrier is yet to make an engine selection for the order. Asiana’s major rival, Korean Air, has orders for 10 A380s, with deliveries due to commence in May-2011. Korean Air’s A380s will be configured with just 407 seats, the lowest seating density announced for the aircraft to date.
