Asiana Airlines to Start Superjumbo Flights to Narita

      March 28, 2014 10:17

      Asiana Airlines will acquire its first A380 passenger jet in late May and start flights to Japan's Narita Airport in mid-June.

      Korea's No. 2 carrier plans to buy a total of six A380s by 2017 and will soon become the 11th airline in the world to operate the massive jets.

      Asiana's first A380 was manufactured in December last year at Airbus' plant in Toulouse, France and underwent a paint job at the Finkenwerder plant in Hamburg, Germany. Twenty-four painters worked for 12 days on four daily shifts to paint Asiana's seven-colored stripe design on the tail of the plane.

      Asiana spokesman Cho Young-seok said the carrier hopes to offer passengers more space and comfort on the A380.
