Korean Air to buy five Boeing 747-8s worth $1.5 bln

SEOUL, Dec 4 (Reuters) - Korean Air (003490.KS), South Korea’s top airline, said on Friday it would purchase five Boeing (BA.N) 747-8 Intercontinental jetliners worth $1.5 billion at list prices.

Korean Air became the first Asian airline to order the passenger version of the fuel-efficient 747-8, its statement said. Korean Air, the world’s biggest air cargo carrier, already has arrangements to operate seven 747-8 freighters. (Reporting by Rhee So-eui and Shin Jieun; Editing by Jonathan Hopfner)
