In just over a year British Airways has flown its millionth passenger on their new Airbus A380 aircraft.

Last Saturday, the 15th November, on the BA268 from Los Angeles to London, BA’s millionth A380 passenger took off. This route was the first destination the airline’s new superjumbo flew to on its inaugural flight, last year on the 24th September.

The first British Airways Airbus #A380 was delivered in July 2013. There are now eight in the fleet flying between Heathrow and Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Singapore and Washington. A further four aircraft have yet to be delivered.

The A380 is a popular aircraft for passengers to fly on. As one of its latest aircraft the cabins have the latest seating and inflight entertainment across the cabins.

British Airways is investing more than £5bn in new aircraft, smarter cabins, elegant lounges, and new technologies to make life more comfortable in the air and on the ground.

Next April the A380 will begin flying to San Francisco, followed by Miami in October, which will benefit from a double daily service. This  new A380 route to Miami is part of British Airways’ plans to enhance the usage of facilities in Terminal 3 and Terminal 5 by combining its operations in two terminals and moving out of Terminal 1.

Over the next 12 months, flights to 20 British Airways destinations, including Miami, will change terminals at Heathrow and by the middle of October 2015 all of the airline’s services will depart from either its flagship home of Terminal 5 or the main oneworld alliance Heathrow base in Terminal 3.
