Asiana Airlines Flagship A380 Returns to Frankfurt
The return of the A380 to Frankfurt had been eagerly anticipated, and the excitement among onlookers was evident. The aircraft with registration HL7626 marks Asiana’s flagship’s comeback after a more than three-year interruption.
Initially, the A380 was introduced on the Seoul-Incheon to Frankfurt route in 2017, but the service was discontinued in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, Asiana had been relying on the A350 for its flights.
Aviation enthusiasts and travelers who missed flying on the iconic A380 will have a limited time to experience it again.
Asiana has scheduled the A380 for specific roundtrip flights on selected dates: July 14, 16, 19, 21, 23, 26, 28, 30, and August 2, 4, 6, and 8.
For the remaining flights, the A380 will be replaced by the A350. Additionally, the A495 is currently scheduled to operate for the rest of the summer and upcoming winter schedules.
The A380 offers a luxurious experience for passengers with its spacious and comfortable cabin. Asiana’s A380 can accommodate up to 495 passengers, making it a popular choice for long-haul flights. The airline possesses a total of six A380s, two of which are currently parked.
With the A380 making its presence felt again at Frankfurt Airport, aviation enthusiasts and travelers can relish this exciting opportunity to fly on one of the world’s largest and most iconic aircraft.
