London will be Europeâ€™s first city to get A380 service
SINGAPORE (Reuters) â€” The worldâ€™s largest passenger jet will take off for London from Singapore on March 18, marking the Airbus A380â€™s first commercial flight to Europe.
Singapore Airlines said on Wednesday that it will start the daily service to Londonâ€™s Heathrow Airport after it takes delivery of its third new superjumbo in mid-March.
The first two A380s that were delivered to Singapore Airlines since October are making daily flights between Singapore and Sydney.
The national carrier launched the first Sydney flight with much fanfare, as passengers bid between $560 and $100,380 for tickets as part of a charity auction to drum up publicity.
