09 Nov 2011
(MENAFN) Air France unveiled a plan to launch A380 services to Dubai in December, Arabian Business reported.
The company said that it will start a daily service to Dubai from Paris-Charles de Gaulle starting in December and continuing throughout the winter season.
Air France explained the plan was aimed at expanding its A380 network which will also see Los Angeles added next May.
The new A380 destination is made possible by the aircraft’s redeployment to Dubai from Tokyo for the winter season as a result of lower seasonal demand in Tokyo.
The company also said that it will operate six Airbus A380 aircraft from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, serving five destinations: New York-JFK, Johannesburg, Montreal, Washington and Dubai for the 2011-12 winter season.
A380, the world’s largest commercial airplane, has a capacity equivalent to a Boeing 777-200ER and an Airbus A340 combined.
