Korean Air has ordered $300 million worth of GP7200s from the Engine Alliance to power its Airbus A380s. The carrier has ordered 23 engines for the five A380s it has on firm order and will take another 13, worth a further $170 million, if it exercises its options for three more. The new order gives the GE Transportation–Aircraft Engines/Pratt & Whitney joint venture a 58-percent share on the A380s for which engines have been specified.
