19 June 2013 Feature story

The no. 1 British Airways A380 today concluded its three-day visit to the Paris Air Show – which included static and flying displays at Le Bourget Airport.

The display of this Airbus 21st century flagship jetliner – noticeable by its distinctive British Airways livery that includes a Union Jack-themed paint scheme – comes before its 4 July delivery to the airline, which will be introducing the double-deck aircraft into its fleet. Initially, the airline will offer routes to Hong Kong and Los Angeles – both served from London.

Airbus is scheduled to deliver the second A380 to British Airways this September as part of the operator’s 12 total orders for this jetliner.
