Toulouse, France — Korean Air orders 33 A350 aircraft from Airbus, the space and aviation company said Tuesday.

The order included A350-1000s and A350-900s, for long-range flights with fuel efficiency and reduced emissions. Airbus highlighted A350’s efficiency and passenger comfort. The A350 Family is known for its modern design, long-range capabilities, and reduced fuel consumption, Airbus said, adding it had received a total of 1,240 A350 orders from 59 customers globally.

The A350 Family is the world’s most modern widebody product line, with passenger versions able to fly 18,000 km non-stop. Powered by latest generation Rolls-Royce engines, its airframes use 70% advanced materials such as composites, titanium, and modern aluminium alloys to create a lighter and more cost-efficient aircraft. This results in an average reduction in fuel consumption and carbon emissions of around 25% compared with similar sized previous generation aircraft.
