A friend of mine recently rode on a SQ A380 from Singapore to San Francisco around a week back, and it makes me want to ride it soon, not just for the size, but also for the features on board. Fortunately, SFO gets at least one A380 flight a day (now SQ, hopefully LH will resume A380 services soon for the summer), and if demand is justified, EK might send an A380 too (with modifications that will allow longer range) to the Bay Area.

Actually the congratulatory message should be delivered to Malaysia Airlines as they have stole the show from Emirates.

The world’s shortest Airbus A380 flights
Australian Business Traveller
14 Mar, 2013

Travellers tend to associate the mighty Airbus A380 with long-haul flights from one corner of the globe to another, but that’s not always the case.

Many airlines run the superjumbo on jaunts lasting just a few hours in order to rake in a little extra revenue from the twin-deck jetliner between its more conventional long-distance flights. After all, with a list price of A$380 million, every extra dollar counts.

Here are the five A380 routes where you almost certainly won’t hear the plaintive plea “Are we there yet?”...

1. Guangzhou-Shanghai (2 hours 20 minutes)

In the same amount of time as it takes to fly between Melbourne and Brisbane, you could be on one of China Southern’s daily superjumbo flights from the airline’s home base in Guangzhou to Shanghai.

China Southern squeezes in this little trip after its A380s return from their journeys to Los Angeles and Paris.

2. Bangkok-Hong Kong and Dubai-Jeddah (2 hours 40 minutes)

Emirates and Thai Airways both run daily superjumbo shuttle service between two of Asia’s busiest and most colourful cities, which have proven popular with business travel and holiday goers alike – even if your stay in the Emirates' first class suite (below) is all too brief.

And with a twice-daily A380 service between Dubai and the Saudi Arabian metropolis of Jeddah, Emirates clearly makes the most of its massive A380 fleet, which is the world’s largest, with 31 superjumbos in the skies and 59 more on order.

3. Guangzhou-Beijing (3 hours 10 minutes)

Another of China Southern’s domestic A380 routes, with two flights each day between Guangzhou and the Chinese capital.

Three hours is barely enough time to enjoy China Southern's spacious Platinum Private Suite first class cabin, but then, it could be argued that any time in the pointy end is time well spent!

4. Sydney-Auckland (3 hours 20 minutes)

This is another short hop for Emirates’ A380, cleverly designed to press the superjumbo into trans-Tasman service during the long layover between when it reaches Sydney on the overnight flight from Dubai and before it makes the return trip. (Emirates also does a daily Melbourne-Auckland A380 service.)

A happy side-effect of this is that it delivers an international-grade experience across the pond, especially if you book on business class – it’s much better than anything Qantas, Virgin Australia or Air New Zealand offers.

We’re talking fully flat beds, a large laptop table with your own AC power socket, a personal minibar plus a business class bar (abive) at the back of the upper deck if you want to stretch your legs and socialise.

5. Seoul to Hong Kong (3 hours 40 minutes)

On Korean Air’s daily superjumbo shuttle between Seoul and Hong Kong there’s still plenty of time to browse the world’s only inflight duty-free store!

Located at the rear of the A380‘s lower deck, this walk-in duty free shop (well, more of a 'showcase' officially, as you can't actually buy the goods directly at the counter) is lined with high-end cosmetics, perfumes and liquor to catch the traveller’s eye and prise open their wallet or purse.

The world's longest Airbus A380 flight..?

If all these quick trips have left you curious as to the world’s longest Airbus A380 flight, that trophy goes to Qantas, with its daily QF94 superjumbo journey from Los Angeles to Melbourne – a trek that totals some 15 hours and 50 minutes.

Airbus delivers 100th A380



Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and Airbus together marked a major achievement, with the hand-over of the 100th A380 to MAS at Airbus’ Henri Ziegler Delivery Centre in Toulouse, France. The aircraft is the sixth A380 for MAS.

“We are delighted that our 100th A380 delivery is to Malaysia Airlines as this gives us an early glimpse into the future shape of aviation,” said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus President and CEO. “We see a growing demand from dynamic, competitive airlines such as MAS for larger aircraft, with many markets and routes, and in particular in the fast developing Asia-Pacific region, being ideally suited to A380s.”

Now in its sixth year of commercial service, the A380 is flying with nine world class airlines. To date, the worldwide fleet has carried some 36 million passengers in 100,000 flights. Previous generation Very Large Aircraft (VLA 400 seats and above) would have required 140,000 flights. This reduction in flights brings essential relief to airport-congestion and the environment. The corresponding saving of 5.7 million tonnes of CO2, demonstrates the A380 generates more revenue whilst minimising emissions and noise.

The A380 fleet performs over 140 flights per day and carries over one and a half million people each month. Passengers can hop on board one of the A380s which are either taking off or landing every six minutes at one of the 32 international airports where it operates to date. On top of these, more than 50 other airports are getting prepared to accommodate the A380 and answer the airlines’ need for more A380 destinations.

Emirates Press Release
Iconic aircraft arrives to commemorate island nation's 45th anniversary





PLAISANCE, Mauritius 12th March 2013 Emirates, one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, today operated a one-off service of its flagship A380 to the island of Mauritius. The first commercial flight of an A380 to the country was scheduled in celebration of the island’s 45th anniversary of independence.

The passengers, many of whom had booked especially to be on the unique flight, were joined by a top-level delegation from the airline including; Tim Clark, President of Emirates, Adnan Kazim, Divisional Senior Vice President, Planning and Research, Sheikh Majid Al Mualla, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations – Gulf, Middle East & Iran and Ahmed Khoory, Senior Vice President, West Asia and Indian Ocean.

Upon landing at the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport the aircraft was met with a ceremonial water cannon salute and the VIP delegation was welcomed by Sarupanand Kinnoo, acting-Director of Civil Aviation, Serge Petit, Chief Executive Officer of Airports of Mauritius and André Viljoen, Chief Executive Officer of Air Mauritius, an Emirates’ code-share partner on this route.

“Emirates operation of the first commercial flight of an A380 to Mauritius on such a symbolic day is testament to the importance of the destination in our network," said Tim Clark. "Our partnership with the country and Air Mauritius has been strong since we started our operations ten years ago. As a major partner of the tourism industry, we will continue to support the island throughout our network to stimulate in-bound traffic,” he added.

"Our flagship aircraft is proving more and more popular, figures show that over 14 million passengers have now experienced a flight on the Emirates’ A380," commented Mr Clark. "Emirates remains committed to being a leader in offering our customers innovative products and services that provide them with an unsurpassed travel experience.”

“Today is an auspicious day for Mauritius and we are welcome the fact that Emirates has chosen today in the history of our airport to bring the first commercial flight of an A380 to Mauritius”, said Serge Petit, CEO of Airports of Mauritius. “The A380 brings with it the opportunity to increase the number of passenger seats to the island. This is where the significant investment in our brand new terminal and airside infrastructure as well as all our drive towards modernisation would pay dividends.”

After a welcoming ceremony, Mauritian VIPs, media and members of the travel industry were given a guided tour of the A380 by Emirates cabin crew, several of whom are from Mauritius. Also joining the tour were a group of 150 young Mauritians from various regions of the island who got the opportunity to watch and play Emirates’ award-winning in-flight entertainment, system, ice, before being given a special gift-pack to commemorate the day.

The Emirates’ A380 is renowned for its First Class Private Suites, Shower Spas and on-board lounge for First Class and Business Class passengers, offering a wide range of drinks and canapés, as well as space to socialise or simply relax. Its three-class configuration boasts 14 private First Class Suites, 76 lie-flat beds in Business Class and 427 seats in Economy Class. Passengers across all cabins will get to enjoy over 1,400 channels on Emirates’ award-winning Digital Widescreen inflight entertainment system, ice and stay connected to the Internet throughout their journey with high speed Wi-Fi access.

As the world’s largest operator of the double-decker aircraft, Emirates’ fleet of 31 A380s serves 21 destinations including: Jeddah, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Amsterdam, Shanghai, Moscow, Rome, Seoul, London Heathrow, Melbourne, Munich, Beijing, Sydney, Auckland, Manchester, Tokyo, Paris, Toronto and New York.

In January, Concourse A which is home of the Emirates A380, opened at Dubai International Airport. The concourse is the world’s first purpose-built A380 concourse with 20 gates capable of handling the aircraft.

Emirates operates double-daily flights to Mauritius, served by a Boeing 777-300.

How much I am hoping that one day, Emirates will send one of their Airbus A380 to my hometown of Surabya.

The A380 global fleet spreads its wings as deliveries hit the “century mark”
Airbus Press Release

Today’s delivery of the 100th A380 marks another milestone for Airbus’ 21st century flagship jetliner, which demonstrates daily the capability to increase capacity, enhance productivity, generate more revenue and improve the profit for its operating airlines – all while being a good neighbour with low noise and emission levels.

14 March 2013

In reaching this “century mark” with an aircraft provided to Malaysia Airlines, the 100th delivery underscores the A380’s global reach – particularly in the Asia-Pacific market, where the jetliner responds to operators’ needs for growth, high levels of service quality and superior range performance. In fact, 65 percent of A380 capacity is to, from, or within Asia-Pacific, with more than 50,000 seats offered on nearly 500 services performed every week.

In addition to its high-profile Asia-Pacific presence, the double-deck jetliner is a familiar sight in Europe – with some 250 weekly services to destinations in this market, as well as in North America – performing over 200 services per week.

Overall, A380s regularly operate at more than 30 airports globally and cover some 65 scheduled routes that circle the world with the nine current operators: Malaysia Airlines, Air France, China Southern, Emirates, Korean Air, Lufthansa, Qantas, Singapore Airlines and Thai Airways International.

Underscoring its attractiveness not only at major hub facilities such as London-Heathrow, Los Angeles International, Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Frankfurt, the A380 performs scheduled operations to destinations that include Auckland, Manchester, Montreal, Jeddah and Johannesburg.

“In its sixth year of service, the A380 is delivering on all commitments, and exceeds the expectations, confirming that our motto: ‘Love at first flight’ is true for both the airlines and their passengers,” said Richard Carcaillet, Airbus’ Director of A380 Product Marketing.
