Thanks to COVID-19, most of the world’s A380 fleet that were grounded. Fast forward a year and with international travel starting to recover, more airlines are now returning the A380 back to the sky.


Singapore Airlines will be reinstating the A380 on November 2021 with flights to London.

The same month British Airways will be flying the A380 from the UK to Europe. Qatar Airways, in a surprise move, will also fly their A380 again from December.

Here are the details:



Singapore Airlines

From 18 November 2021, Singapore Airlines will begin flying the Airbus A380 daily between Singapore and London.

Singapore Airlines A380 flight to/from London will operate as a “Vaccinated Travel Lane” (VTL) flight, which means all passengers must be vaccinated and fulfill the VTL requirement below:



VTL Requirement Details

Travellers to Singapore must have only been to their VTL country/region of departure and/or Singapore in the last 14 consecutive days before departure for Singapore.


Vaccination Requirement

From 18th October travellers must be fully vaccinated and have a valid proof of vaccination issued in any VTL country/region or Singapore, regardless of which VTL country/region they depart from.

Singapore A380 will feature 6 First Class Suites, 78 business class seats, 44 premium economy seats, and 343 economy seats.



British Airways

In November, British Airways will operate the A380 on short-haul routes for crew familiarization purposes. These inter-Europe A380 flights are now bookable and perhaps a great way to enjoy the A380 Jumbo Jet without breaking the bank.




Qatar Airways

Qatar Airways GCEO HE Akbar Al Baker has confirmed that the airline will restart flights, operated by the Airbus A380, which were thought to never return. The airline said that due to the grounding of the 13 A350s, over claims of fuselage degradation, this forced the carrier to make a decision.
