Skymark Airlines’ first A380 has successfully made its maiden flight, following completion of the airframe assembly and system tests in Toulouse, France. The carrier’s A380 will be entering the next phase of production, covering cabin installation and painting at Hamburg, Germany.
Skymark Airlines will become the first A380 operator in Japan when it takes delivery of its first aircraft later this year. The airline has six A380s on order. Skymark Airlines will deploy their A380s on international trunk routes, in particular linking Narita to destinations in the US, offering its passengers the unique experience of space and comfort when flying the A380.
