Asiana Airlines’ first Airbus A380 has successfully completed its maiden flight. The A380 flew on Friday 14 November 2013 from Airbus’ facilities in Toulouse, France to the aircraft manufacturer’s site in Hamburg, Germany, where it will undergo painting and cabin furnishing.
Asiana Airlines will become the twelfth operator of the A380 when it takes delivery of its first aircraft in the second quarter of 2014. The airline has firm orders for six A380s and will operate the aircraft on its primary routes from Seoul to the US. This particular aircraft went on the final assembly line in September.
