Korean Air’s onboard ‘Duty Free Showcase’ feature will be coming to the UK after the airline announced it would put its A380 aircraft into service on the Incheon to London Heathrow route. The first of the daily A380 flights will take place at the start of Korean Air’s summer service on 27 March 2016.
An innovative feature of Korean Air’s A380 fleet, the duty-free showcase area is located at the rear of the aircraft’s lower deck and features a variety of luxury beauty, spirits and wine and selected fashion lines.
A dedicated cabin crew member is normally stationed in the showcase area, and is “on hand to assist and advise passengers with all their shopping needs”.
“The UK market has been keenly awaiting the opportunity to experience Korean Air’s A380 aircraft with its innovative layout and unique features,” said Korean Air Sales Manager for UK & Ireland Peter Barron. “Our passengers will not be disappointed. The A380 really does deserve its nickname ‘Hotel in the Sky’, and regardless of class of travel all passengers will experience a comfortable and restful journey with excellent inflight services.”
