  • Korean Air first operator of Boeing 747-8I to Australia

    Korean Air has become the first airline to operate the latest passenger variant of Boeing’s evergreen 747 to Australia.

    The Skyteam alliance member’s Boeing 747-8I HL7642 touched down at Sydney Airport in the early hours of Saturday morning as KE121 from Seoul Incheon.

    The aircraft was on the ground for about one hour and 40 minutes before taking off as the reciprocal KE122.

    While Cathay Pacific has used the 747-8F freighter to Australia for a number of years, including to Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport, Korean Air is the first airline to operate the 747-8I to Australia.

    Cathay has indeed been flying the 747-8F to and from Australia for some time, including into SYD and on to MEL.

    Yeah, only the Tuesday CPA flight goes to Wellcamp after it's been to SYD and MEL earlier in the day.
