Korean Air is deploying the new Airbus A321neo aircraft on its daily Seoul Incheon-Phnom Penh service starting July 1, and is the first Asian airline to feature Airbus’ Airspace cabin on an A321neo.
The A321neo is a new aircraft type and the airline’s first narrow body aircraft to have fully lie-flat seats in Prestige Class (business class), a feature normally found exclusively on wide-body aircraft. The cabin comprises eight Prestige Class seats and 174 economy class seats.
The SkyTeam carrier’s Airspace cabin will include customisable lighting system, audio/visual Bluetooth pairing, larger overhead bins, and more.
The airline is slated to receive a total of 30 A321neo aircraft by 2027. It will also be deploying these aircraft on other routes to South-east Asia as well as routes to China and Japan.
