Korean Air has selected Pratt & Whitney’s PW4170 Advantage70 engine to power six new Airbus A330s it has on order. The contract, valued at some $300 million, includes two spare turbofans. Korean Air in February placed a new firm order with Airbus for six more A330-200s, the first for the new 238-metric-ton increased takeoff weight version of the twin-engine widebody, offering an extended flying range of up to 7,200 nm. Scheduled for delivery beginning in 2010, the new aircraft will arrive in a three-class layout and will fly from Seoul to Europe and North America, according to Korean Air’s plans. The order increased to nine the total number of A330-200s ordered by
the airline, which also operates 16 A330-300s.
