Since taking to the sky for its first commercial flight on 25th October 2007 the flagship Airbus A380 has continued to draw passenger wanting to experience the jet for themselves. At present 17 A380 are in service operated by Singapore Airlines, Emirates and Qantas. As the number of planes in service has increased, so too has the number of destinations they now service.
Currently 18 destinations exist across the three companies networks, however some flights on these route are still operated by older aircraft including 747's and 777's. As such for passengers wanting to plan their trip to travel on the super-jumbo picking the rights flight remains important.
Below is a summary of each route flown by the A380 plus the relevant carrier, flight number, departure and arrival time, weekly schedule and the classes offered by each carrier. I hope this proves useful for those trying to plan their trip to experience this spectacular aircraft:
