Malaysia Airlines Takes Delivery of Third Airbus A380

Malaysia Airlines’(MAS) third Airbus A380 aircraft arrived at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) in Sepang today.

The aircraft, which flew in from Toulouse, France, arrived at 9.35 am and will undergo final preparations at the KLIA for commercial flight operations.

MAS in a statement here said the national carrier will also receive its fourth A380 by the end of this week.

It will use the two latest 494-seater aircraft to commence day-time flights from KLIA to London's Heathrow airport effective Nov 24.

Flight MH4 will depart KLIA at 10.45 am daily to arrive at Heathrow the same day at 4.15pm. The return flight, MH1, departs London daily at 10.00 pm and arrives KLIA the next day at 6.20pm.

"This day service will complement the current daily A380 night service to the British capital, where MH2 departs KLIA at 11.40pm and arrives in London at 5.50 am the following day.

"The return flight, MH3, departs London at 12.00 noon and arrives at KLIA at 7.25 am the next day," MAS said.

With the introduction of the double-daily A380 services effective Nov 24, MAS will cease the 359-seater B747-400 flight operations between KLIA and London.

The double-daily A380 operations by MAS, the only full service carrier to offer direct services between Malaysia and the UK, will also improve weekly seat capacity by 37 per cent in both directions of the KLIA-London Heathrow route.

The A380 services will offer 6916 seats weekly compared to 5026 seats offered through the earlier double daily B747-400 operations, allowing more passengers to travel on the latest super jumbo aircraft.

MAS is the eighth operator of this new aircraft and will receive its remaining two A380 by the first quarter of 2013.
