Air France Introduces A380 to Hong Kong

From 9th June to 25th October 2014, Air France will offer a daily flight from Paris to Hong Kong via the A380 (with four flights per week from 27th May to 8th June 2014), thus becoming the first airline to connect France and the ‘Pearl of the Orient’ by A380. 


Hong Kong will become the seventh destination served from Paris by A380 and the second in China, joining Los Angeles, New York, Washington DC, Johannesburg, Tokyo, and Shanghai.

Air France operated its first commercial A380 flight between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and New York on 23rd November 2009, becoming the first European airline to offer flights on the double-decker super jumbo.
