Korean Air (KAL) has ordered two more Airbus A380s, increasing its commitment to the type to ten.

The SkyTeam Alliance carrier says in a statement today it has ordered two more A380s and one will be delivered in May 2014 and the other in June of that year.

It says the first eight already on order are to be delivered between 2010 and 2013. It ordered the first five in 2003 and ordered three more in 2008.

KAL says it plans to operate the A380s on its "highly trafficked long-haul routes such as Los Angeles, New York and Paris".
