British Airways has announced launch dates for its first superjumbo aerial shuttle A380 services to Los Angeles. The A380 has been confirmed to launch on September 24, from Heathrow to L.A.
The airline has also confirmed its first A380 flight schedule from Heathrow to Hong Kong to launch on October 22. BA became the first UK airline to take delivery of the world’s largest commercial jet on 4th July, just a week after 787 dreamliner made its maiden arrival at Heathrow.
“These aircraft are the start of a new era for British Airways,” said CEO Keith Williams.
Airfare for the superjumbo jet for both routes starts at £621 for Los Angeles and £688 for Hong Kong. Tickets are on sale this July at great bargain rates.
Keith Williams, British Airways’ chief executive, said: “This will be a very special premiere. The A380 is a great aircraft that has been developed with huge amounts of British engineering ingenuity. London and Los Angeles are two world-leading cities, and we are proud to be the first airline to connect them with the A380.”
London-based actress Gemma Arterton said: “Working in film means that I spend a lot of time travelling around the world, often to Hollywood. It’s very exciting that the A380 will be flying to Los Angeles. I think the red carpet route will be very popular.”
