SEOUL, Feb 13 (Reuters) - Korean Air Co 003490.KS will purchase an additional three A380 superjumbo jets from Airbus EAD.PA on top of five jets it had earlier agreed to buy from the European aerospace firm, a company official said on Wednesday.
The additional purchase by South Korea’s largest carrier came through exercising an option contained in the original contract, the official added, but declined to give the value of the deal.
Delivery of all the planes in the contract will start in 2010. (Reporting by Kim Yeon-hee and Cheon Jong-woo; Editing by Jan Dahinten)
