For many in the UK, this week’s Farnborough Air Show was a thrilling chance to see and step aboard the new Airbus A380 in Malaysia Airlines colours.
Their second example, 9M-MNB, was flown to the event for demonstration whilst their first example -MNA has recently entered service on the carrier’s Kuala Lumpur – London Heathrow service.
So where can you see these shiny new behemoth’s? Initially, the Malaysia A380s will be flown on the following routes (all from Kuala Lumpur):
- London Heathrow (3x weekly, until it goes 1x daily on 25 August 2012)
- Sydney (1x daily from 25 November 2012)
- Tokyo Narita (1x daily from 25 November 2012)
- Beijing (1x daily from 1 March 2013)
