A Korean Air Boeing 737-900ER, featuring Boeing’s Sky Interior, was the second Boeing aircraft to arrive at this year’s Farnborough International Airshow, landing at the airfield on July 8.
The first Boeing aircraft to arrive at the Farnborough International Airshow 2012 was the first Boeing 787-8 for Qatar Airways, which will be performing in the flight display at the show from July 9 onwards.
“The 737 Boeing Sky Interior is helping airlines like Korean Air to differentiate themselves from their competitors,” said Beverly Wyse, vice present and general manager of the 737 program for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “Passengers instantly see and feel the difference.”
Those differences include sculpted sidewalls and window reveals, LED lighting, larger stow bins and more intuitive placement of attendant call and light buttons.
Seoul-based Korean Air currently operates four Boeing 737-900ER jets as well as a combination of 34 737-800s and -900s in its single-aisle fleet.
The Korean Air fleet includes 87 Boeing commercial jetliners. Korean Air took delivery in May 2012 of the aircraft on show at Farnborough.
