  • Korean Air Losing 13 Seats On Its A380 To Make Way For Flying Duty Free
    Posted by Rupa Haria 9:09 AM on Apr 05, 2011

    Korean Air is announcing today that its first A380 to enter service on 10 June will be equipped with a fully-stocked duty free shop on board.

    KAL will have to sacrifice revenue from 13 seats to make way for the ‘world’s first flying duty free shop’. 

    The shop will have the capacity carry up to 150kg of goods across five display units, according to a report by Flight Global. Products on offer will include cosmetics, fragrances, liquors and accessories. The concept has been designed by UK-based interiors company AIM Aviation.

    Korean Air’s A380 will have 407 seats with 12 in first class, 94 prestige class and 301 in economy.

    The duty free shop is being unveiled at the Aircraft Interiors Show in Hamburg today.
