Korean Air has ordered ten Bombardier Aerospace CS300 aircraft. The transaction also includes options on 10 CS300 aircraft and purchase rights for an additional 10 CS300 aircraft.

The firm order makes Korean Air, South Korea's flagship airline, the launch customer for the CSeries aircraft in Asia.

The airline currently operates a fleet of 137 passenger and cargo jet aircraft to 115 cities in 39 countries.

Korean Air's CS300 aircraft will be powered by Pratt & Whitney geared turbofan PW1521G engines designed for the growing 100- to 149-seat market.

 "Korean Air's selection of the CSeries aircraft to meet its route expansion requirements in the Asia-Pacific market, and our growing list of customers in the European and North American markets are testaments to the high value and operational flexibility of the CSeries aircraft program," said Gary R. Scott, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.
