British Airways today announced plans to operate an Airbus A380 between the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and London-Heathrow Airport beginning in April 2015 and planned through the busy summer travel season.
“We’re excited to see British Airways begin A380 service at SFO,” said Airport Director John L. Martin. “More than ever, our customers have a wide variety of travel options to Europe and beyond. British Airways’ A380 provides a new way to create an unforgettable journey from SFO.”
The Airbus A380 is the largest commercial passenger aircraft in the world, featuring a double-deck that extends the entire length of the fuselage.
British Airways operates the A380-800 version, which seats 469 passengers in four classes of service, made up of 12 First Class, 97 Club World, 55 World Traveller Plus, and 303 World Traveller seats.
British Airways’ A380 aircraft offers 170 more seats per flight than the Boeing 747, which previously operated on the route.
The nonstop flight will operate in A380 equipment five days a week, on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
On Tuesdays and Wednesdays the flight will operate in Boeing 747 equipment.
