Korean Air and Airbus have joined hands to go shopping together.

Korean Air and Airbus are currently in talks to purchase 33 aircraft from the A350 family for a total of US$13.7 billion. The order will consist of 27 A350-1000s and 6 A350-900s.

This acquisition is part of Korean Air’s plans to upgrade its existing fleet, as older aircraft are gradually phased out. The environmentally-friendly and advanced technology of the A350 aircraft aligns with the airline’s commitment to sustainability, and will also aid in the integration of Asiana Airlines.

The following text is already clear and well-written, but I’ve made some minor edits to improve readability:

The A350-1000 is the largest aircraft in its series and can typically carry 350-410 passengers across three classes. It utilizes advanced composite materials to achieve up to 25% fuel savings and reduced carbon emissions compared to prior generations of aircraft.

Notably, the A350-1000 boasts the longest flight range of any passenger aircraft currently in operation, with a maximum payload range of 16,000 kilometers.

The A350-900, slightly smaller than the A350-1000 at seven meters shorter, can accommodate 300-350 passengers across three classes. It is commonly used for long-haul flights such as Seoul Incheon-New York, with two daily flights currently in operation. The aircraft has a range of 15,370 km.

Korean Air plans to reduce carbon emissions by upgrading its fleet with 10 Boeing 787-9s, 20 Boeing 787-10s, 30 Boeing 737-8s, and 50 Airbus A321neos while implementing sustainable practices.
