Global Airlines Pushes First Flight Target to 2025

by Matt Falcus

Global Airlines, the brand new carrier aiming to launch services with a fleet of Airbus A380 aircraft has indicated it now plans to begin commercial flying in 2025, instead of later in 2024.

The airline recently flew its first A380 (with registration 9H-GLOBL) aircraft to Prestwick in Scotland, where it has had the airline’s titles added to the otherwise legacy livery of previous owner China Southern Airlines.

Work is underway to prepare the aircraft for a return to active service, and to receive the interior configuration to be used by Global Airlines when it begins flying passengers on long haul services out of London.

It is this work which has led to a delay in start date.

The airline is initially planning to launch charter flights in 2025, and has not yet selected which routes its scheduled services will operate from.

An additional 3 Airbus A380 aircraft have reportedly been acquired by the airline, but none apart from 9H-GLOBL have been active, and presumably more time will be needed to get the remaining airframes airworthy and in a ready state to begin operations.

The airline also today announced a new strategic partnership with Orrick LLP “the most active venture capital firm in Europe.”

Global also recently unveiled its prototype cabin crew uniforms, as seen here.
