Airbus A380s cleared for landing in India airports
Expect to see A380s in India very soon!

New Delhi: The aviation ministry has lifted a ban on jumbo jet Airbus A380, a move that will allow international airlines such as Singapore Airlines Ltd, Emirates and Deutsche Lufthansa AG to start its flights to India, aviation minister Ajit Singh said in a statement on Monday.
“Now, flights of A-380 to India will be allowed to airports which are equipped to handle them,” the ministry statement said. At present only four airports—Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bangalore—have the required infrastructure for operations of A-380. The decision was taken after consulting with the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the statement said.
“The operation of A380s will help airports to generate more revenue, give more comfortable and luxurious travel to passengers, liberalize the civil aviation milieu in India and boost the image of Indian civil aviation in the international market,” the ministry said. “As per available information, Singapore Airline, Emirates and Lufthansa are interested in operating A-380 aircrafts in India on various international routes.”
The A380 can cram 850 passengers in an all-economy configuration, transporting more travellers without significantly adding flights.
There are 114 A380s serving various routes worldwide, with another 262 of such aircraft on firm order, according to Airbus.
Nine of the 10 airlines that currently fly the A380 have scheduled flights into India.

It's not an ideal solution, something that Airbus doesn't want to do on a regular basis every year. But it's a way to keep the production going until more orders come in or until the commercial decision to lower the production rate will have to be made.


And a small follow up order from Transaero is always welcome, but I can't see them taking delivery of 2 A380s on a yearly basis. What the program really needs are some major orders right now from several of the big national airlines, like Turkish or a major US carrier.
US Carriers have expressed no interest in the A380. They are retiring VLA for the 787 and the 777x and the A350s.

United has earlier shown some interest, in the sense that their CEO has said that they could see a role for the A380 in their fleet especially on the Asian routes.

After United reduced their number of 747s pre merger they haven't done so the last couple of years. Their 787 and A350-1000 orders are to replace the 767s, the 777-200s and the 747s, that's 100 new planes to replace 150 older aircraft. There's still room for more orders, this could be the 777X (which doesn't have any US orders yet) but there might also be room for a A380 order.

AA actually went up several steps in size with their 777-300ER order, they are not only opting for smaller planes. The A380 was also clearly too big for US Airways, but since they have taken over AA it's a different story. Now we have the biggest US airline with a management that is very Airbus friendly, if the trend to go bigger continues they could very well end up placing an A380 order.

Delta's 747s are also still going strong and will soldier on well into the 2020s, no sign of any retirement. There's no way that they are ordering the A380, it's an too expensive plane for their fleet strategy.

But does this mean that an US airline will actually place an order for the A380, I have my doubts but I wouldn't rule it out completely. Airbus will be pushing them very hard, because they know they need the orders to keep the program profitable for the long run.

India lifts ban on Airbus A380s

The Indian government said Monday it was lifting restrictions on Airbus A380 flights into the country. The decision will allow airlines like Singapore Airlines, Emirates and Lufthansa to start using the aircraft on their India routes.

The ban had been in force over the years, to protect flag carrier Air India and also because of inadequate airport infrastructure.

A380s will be allowed into the country’s four largest airports at Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore, which have infrastructure in place for the operations. The government has clarified that the flights will be subject to overall traffic entitlements within the bilateral Air Service Agreements with different countries.

Emirates and Singapore Airlines, two of the largest international carriers operating to India, said they will review A380 plans now. India is a huge source market for originating passengers for both airlines. An Emirates spokesperson said, “We welcome the decision of the Indian aviation authorities to allow A380 operations. We will be reviewing our existing operations, and look forward to serving Indian travelers with our flagship aircraft in the near future.”

The call to allow A380 flights is the latest in a series of announcements by the Indian government, to liberalize rules for the airline industry. Opening up foreign investment into Indian carriers has led to new airline ventures being announced. The civil aviation minister Ajit Singh said the flights will help airports generate higher revenue and allow passengers to travel luxuriously.

David Lau, general manager (India), Singapore Airlines said, “The clearance to deploy A380s on Indian routes is favorable news to the Indian aviation industry. Singapore Airlines will evaluate the commercial viability of this recent development based on available traffic rights and resources.”

From the South African section: one of the British Airways A380s is currently in Durban until February 4th for crew training and the BA "man vs plane" publicity stunt.

I wonder when will Indonesian government allow A380 to land on regular basis?
Emirates are actually keen to send their A380 to Jakarta, as it is seen as a potential market for such service.
In fact of all top 10 busiest airports in 2013, only Jakarta airport is not capable to handle A380.

The reason cited by airport authority were "difficulty in expanding airport in time, and managing airport in general", such a foolish and embarrassing excuses

So far, there has been two A380 landings in Indonesian airport. Both on incidental reasons.
The first one was when Singapore Airlines A380 makes a medical emergency landing in Jakarta, and the second one was when a Qantas A380 landed in Batam, due to haze restriction at Changi airport.

Asiana Airlines selects Airbus’s Flight Hour Services for A380 fleet

South Korean carrier Asiana Airlines has selected Airbus's Flight Hour Services (FHS) to offer components support for its A380 aircraft fleet.

The latest FHS agreement between Asiana and Airbus will run for ten years, and offers an extensive scope of A380 line replaceable units (LRUs). (Source)

The Air France A380 flies to French-speaking Africa for the first time

This special flight to Côte d’Ivoire was also a major event for Servair, an Air France subsidiary and leader in airline catering and airport services in Africa.

Michel Quissac, Servair’s Corporate Chef, was on board this flight and welcomed La Première and Business customers. During the trip, he presented the à la carte menus, found out what they think of the dishes and explained how the company adapts to the constraints of airline catering on a daily basis, to preserve the original spirit and flavour of the dishes on board. In addition, he passed on his expertise and know-how to the crew, to ensure dishes are presented in an optimum way and to constantly ensure service excellence. Once a week, Air France renews this exceptional event on one of its long-haul flights.

On the Abidjan-Paris return flight by A380 on the evening of 28 January, Servair Abidjan provided for the very first time the catering supplies for the super jumbo on departure from an African station.
