So one of the shortest flight for the A380, with the Emirate's Dubai - Jeddah.

Malaysia Airlines' A380 heads to London, Amsterdam... and Sydney?

Business travellers connecting on Malaysia Airlines (MAS) from Australia to London and Amsterdam through Kuala Lumpur will be flying on the newest Airbus A380 next year.

MAS has six of the superjumbos on order. Airline industry magazine ATI quotes an airline spokesperson as saying the A380 will "primarily serve the Kuala Lumpur-London and Kuala Lumpur-Amsterdam routes," and that five of the six on order will be in service in 2012, with the final plane arriving in 2013.

The airline will join Qantas, Emirates, Lufthansa and Singapore Airlines to become the fifth airline flying the A380 on all or part of the Kangaroo Route between Europe and Australia.

Malaysia's A380s will be packed with 508 seats, with eight in first class, 54 in business, 26 new Premium Economy seats -- a first for the airline -- and 420 in Economy.

Malaysia Airlines currently flies to Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney from its Kuala Lumpur hub. Its newest Airbus A330 planes are on the Brisbane route.
MAS' new A330s are already on the Australian route. Will the six A380s join them next year? Magnify MAS' new A330s are already on the Australian route. Will the six A380s join them next year?

The airline recently won praise from travel book writers Fodors for their premium lounges in KL airport.

A380s will replace the existing Boeing 747-400 flagship aircraft on the London and Amsterdam routes. But could MAS be the fourth airline to offer all-A380 flights from Australia to London?

Sydney is the other destination for Malaysia's 747s, which makes it an excellent candidate for the airline's A380s. Six planes is just enough for a daily return from KL to London, Amsterdam and one other city.

And if Malaysia Airlines ends up as Virgin Australia's new Asian partner, Virgin's feeder flights into Sydney from regional Australia could make an A380-load of passengers a reasonable option.

Korean Air's First Airbus A380 Set to Arrive in Seoul

Korean Air's first Airbus A380 superjumbo is slated to arrive at Incheon International Airport at 9 a.m. on Thursday.

Measuring 24.1 meters high and weighing 560 tons, the double-decker jet is the largest passenger aircraft in the world and carries a price tag of US$375 million (W412.5 billion).

Made by Airbus in Toulouse, France, the first A380 debuted with Singapore Airlines in Oct. 2007. Currently only 48 are in service among six airlines, including Lufthansa, Air France, Emirates and Qantas.

Korean Air plans to operate the new aircraft on the Incheon-Narita route from June 17, and introduce four more by the end of the year for long-haul flights to North America and Europe.

Another great capture of the skies new empress!

I'm going to go against the flow and declare my aesthetic preference for the a380. The 748 just looks totally unbalanced with the hump extension, and i've never realy liked the nose of the 747.

Korean Air to put 1st A380 on Incheon-Narita route

Korean Air, the nation’s largest airline, will operate its first A380 aircraft, dubbed “hotel in the sky,” on the Incheon-Narita and other short-distance routes in order to enable more passengers to experience what the jumbo jet is all about.

The airline said Thursday that its first A380 plane will make its first passenger flight June 17, carrying travelers to Narita International Airport from Incheon International Airport. After returning from Japan, the aircraft is also scheduled to fly to Hong Kong later in the day.

Korean Air plans to bring in four more A380 airplanes by the end of the year, operating them on its mid- and long-distance routes linking Incheon and cities in North America and Europe. Airbus will deliver five more jets to Korean Air by 2014.

“We are happy to begin offering a great flight experience to our customers soon on the A380 airplanes. We decided to operate the first one on short-distance routes to provide more passengers with the opportunity to experience it first hand,” a Korean Air spokesman said. Korean Air will be the world’s sixth airline operating the jumbo jet and the first among airlines based in Northeast Asia.

The company has turned the entire second level of the double-deck A380 into business class, providing a total of 94 prestige-class seats. Besides the 94 business-class seats, the airplane will have 12 first-class and 301 coach seats for a total of 407 seats, the fewest among airlines that currently operate A380s.

There will also be a duty-free shop on board and a lounge where passengers can relax or share drinks from the bar with other passengers.

“Korean Air’s A380 will be the most spacious and comfortable for passengers. We will be able to further reinforce our reputation as the provider of one of the world’s most premium flight services,” the spokesman said.

He also said the operation of A380s will better cater to diversifying customer needs and improve the status of Incheon International Airport as an air travel hub in Northeast Asia.

HK-S'pore SIA flight disrupted
By Vimita Mohandas | Posted: 05 June 2011 2141 hrs

SINGAPORE: A Singapore-bound Airbus A380 had to turn around and land in Hong Kong after experiencing problems with the aircraft's landing gear.

A Singapore Airlines (SIA) spokesperson told MediaCorp the flight from Hong Kong had about 400 passengers.

The flight which took off at 3.20pm made its way back to Hong Kong International Airport at about 4.45pm.

The spokesperson added SIA is making arrangements to transfer affected passengers to other flights.

It said ground engineers in Hong Kong are still investigating the matter.

Last picture is great. You get an idea how much bigger the A380 actually is compared to the 747.

Korean Air Gets Ready to Fly 1st A380 Superjumbo

The government and Korean Air are preparing to start operation of the country's first Airbus A380 superjumbo, which has recently been delivered.

Korea has no pilot examiners for the A380, so 21 Korean Air pilots underwent training in France.

Six of them are expected to obtain final certificates from the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs late this month after training flights to Tokyo and Hong Kong.

Seven foreign Airbus pilots hired temporarily for the purpose will take turns to train the Korean pilots here. It was they who flew the A380 into the country from France last Thursday.

The huge plane itself has to pass tests set by the government. The ministry has been putting the aircraft to 50-hour test flights between Saturday to Tuesday. Take-off and landing are possible only at Incheon and Gimpo airports, since they require long runways. Once it passes the tests, the A380 will be put into operation on routes to Narita Airport in Tokyo and Hong Kong on June 17.

The Incheon Airport authority has installed a new bridge connecting to the 24.1 m-high upper deck of the A380.

yesterday arrival ceremony of Emirates' aircraft Airbus ACJ-380
Rome, Italy - It was held at the airport "Leonardo da Vinci" at 12 pm
13572

(WAPA) - The arrival ceremony of Emirates' aircraft Airbus ACJ-380, held during the airport "Leonardo da Vinci" of Rome's 50th anniversary, was opened yesterday morning at 12 pm in the same airport, where the journalist, after making a real check-in, could assist to the ACJ-380 colossus' landing: after the touch down the aircraft, just before the arriving to the fingers, was "Baptized" by fire trucks water jet.

So, to celebrate the Fiumicino airport 50 years, the flight EK 97 coming from Dubai was landing in Rome at the 1:15 pm, acclaimed by all the staff on the site.

After the arriving of "The largest airplane in the world" (as the words of Salem Obaidalla, Emirates Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Europe and Russian Federation) was opened the press conference which participated, in addition to Obaidalla, the General Director of ENAC (Civil Aviation Authority) Alessio Quaranta and the CEO of AdR (Aeroporti di Roma) Maleci.

Salem Obaidalla congratulated with Rome' airport for its 50th anniversary and for the development of its facilities, which now could receive the largest aircraft in the world; "We are proud to be the first airline to link the Italian capital to Dubai with our ACJ-380. Since the first flight operated on Rome in 1992, we continue to grow in Italy, both in frequency is in capacity, reaching 35 weekly passengers flights between Dubai and Italy. Our 380 is the future of the air transport both in terms of travel experience is for the sensibility to the environment, and now it could be a reality also for the Italian passengers thanks to the efforts of our important partner AdR". "I hope that most of you will take advantage of this occasion to visit this giant of the skies, flagship of the aeronautical industry".

It follows Alessio Quaranta speech, who, after having underlined the difficulties encountered by AdR from a long time in completing a program contract, expresses his hope that this event could be afoot of a program contract possible start.

Instead the CEO Maleci reminds a bit of history: in fact in 1947 it was felt the need to provide the Italian capital of a larger airport than Ciampino-Pastine; after few years were given the keys to the minister Andreotti of the largest and most modern airport of Italy : the Fiumicino airport, which was inaugurated in 1961 with its first commercial flight, a TWA "Costellation" coming from New York.

Then Maleci pointed out that AdR demonstrated, despite the difficulties in reaching a program contract in the last 11 years, to be able to invest in its project: "We have a project to carry out an airport for 100 million of passengers (Fiumicino sud) to take Roma to the maximum level: a project that will keep us busy for the next 20 years".
