韩国航空公司正在推动该国窄体机队的重大升级。随着一些新兴航空公司的出现,现有的运营商准备迎接一波新机型的到来。大韩航空计划引入空中客车A321neo和波音737MAX,这两款机型的首批交付都已推迟。韩亚航空也订购了A321neo,低成本航空公司(LCC)济州航空(Jeju Air)订购了多达50架波音737MAX系列飞机。

South Korean airlines are driving major changes in the country’s narrowbody fleet, as startup carriers emerge and existing players prepare to receive a wave of new-generation models. Korean Air intends to introduce Airbus A321neos and Boeing 737 MAXs, although first deliveries of both types have been delayed. Asiana Airlines also has A321neos on order, while low-cost carrier (LCC) Jeju Air has ordered up to 50 Boeing MAX-family aircraft. 

 

韩国航空运输业的另一个值得关注的趋势是,韩国政府已批准三家新兴低成本航空公司投入运营,其中两家将运营窄体机。根据美国航空周刊的机队数据库,窄体机订单共占韩国航空公司飞机订单的85%,如果统计租赁的飞机,那么预计窄体机占比会更大。
 
In another notable development, the South Korean government has approved three LCC startups to enter service, two of which will operate narrowbodies. Narrowbody aircraft collectively make up 85% of orders made by South Korean airlines, according to Aviation Week’s fleet database. More are expected to be added via deals with lessors.
 
在目前的形势下,波音737MAX的交付时间尚不确定,但韩国仍然需要对其窄体机机队的运营进行重大改革。
 
While the timing of the MAX deliveries is uncertain due to the worldwide grounding of the type, South Korea is still set for a significant overhaul of its narrowbody operations.
