British Airways has filed four destinations initially for Airbus A380 operations ahead of the Summer 2024 season next year.

Based on data from AeroRoutes.com, this will see three of the four destinations being in the U.S. and one in South Africa.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

British Airways is set to serve the following four destinations on a once-daily basis:

  • Dallas Fort Worth
  • Johannesburg
  • San Francisco
  • Washington Dulles

According to AeroRoutes, there will be further adjustments to these initial schedules, but this gives us some insight into what the high-performing routes are for the airline on the capacity front.

It will be interesting to see what other adjustments will be made in due course.

As per data from Planespotters.net, British Airways has 12 Airbus A380 aircraft, with the registrations being as follows:

  • G-XLEA
  • G-XLEB
  • G-XLEC
  • G-XLED
  • G-XLEE
  • G-XLEF
  • G-XLEG
  • G-XLEH
  • G-XLEI
  • G-XLEJ
  • G-XLEK
  • G-XLEL

Each unit sits 14 passengers in First Class, 97 in Business, 55 in Premium Economy, and 303 in Economy, respectively.

The reason why we may see preliminary changes is because of the fact the airline has 12 A380s, which could mean more destinations added or frequency boosts moving forward.

British Airways brought their A380s back into commercial service towards the end of 2021 following storage in Chateauroux, Teruel, and Madrid during the COVID-19 pandemic.

With demand for air travel bouncing back very strongly, it comes as no surprise that these aircraft are being utilized by the airline once again.
