Air France has started flying the A380 to Hong Kong, making the city the airline's second superjumbo destination in China after Shanghai.
The carrier operates a daily flight from Paris to the Chinese Special Administrative Region, but from now until October 25 the route will be serviced by the A380, except from May 27 to June 8 and from June 16 to 22, when the superjumbo will only operate on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday and the other three rotations will be flown by the usual B777-300.
The airline's A380 features a four-class configuration with nine seats in first (La Première), 80 in business, 38 in premium economy and 389 in economy.
Flight AF188 departs Paris Charles de Gaulle at 2325 and arrives in Hong Kong at 1720 the following day. The return flight leaves Hong Kong at 0050, and touches down in the French capital at 0800 the same day.
