Heathrow Adds Another A380 Operator

London Heathrow Airport, the UK's busiest Airport and the worlds busiest airport in terms of International Passenger traffic will welcome Malaysia Airlines' first Airbus A380 Super Jumbo on Monday 2 July 2012. In doing so, Heathrow airport adds it's fourth regularly scheduled A380 operator to its books, after Singapore Airlines, Emirates and Qantas.

Heathrow is a natural home to the A380. Running at 98% capacity, there is little room for airlines to expand with extra flights, so larger A380's are one option airlines are using to increase passenger numbers.

Eventually, Heathrow will be home to British Airways and Virgin Atlantic A380's when the two carriers start taking delivery over the next few years.
