Malaysia Airlines‘ first A380 was unveiled this week bearing a new livery ahead of entry into service on July 1 on the Kuala Lumpur–London route.
The livery was designed by the carrier specifically for its new A380 flagship and was applied post-delivery by Airbus in Toulouse. Malaysia Airlines has ordered six A380s with a premium layout seating 494 passengers in three classes.
This aircraft will be used to operate thrice weekly departures (Tuesday, Friday and Sunday) for Kuala Lumpur–London and the return flight departing the following day.
Malaysia Airlines said the overall booked load was encouraging, with the first five flights out of Kuala Lumpur fully booked for First class. After the delivery of the second aircraft in August, the company will start daily A380 flights on this route.
