Global Airlines CEO James Asquith announced on LinkedIn that it’s first Airbus A380 has completed it’s return to service work.
This represents another stage closer to having the aircraft ready for commercial operations, with other steps such as acquiring an Air Operator’s Certificate still needed.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
First Global Airlines A380 Completes Return to Service Work…
Global Airlines CEO James Asquith noted on LinkedIn that A380 #2 becomes the first to complete this return to service work, and said the following on the social media platform:
“Another huge moment here for Global Airlines – our second a380 aircraft (but first to fly) has completed its return to service work. A huge and monumental challenge and I couldn’t be more proud of our team!”
He also attached the following video detailing this work, which you can see below:
The video details that the aircraft will fly to a new home where the Airbus A380 will begin extensive refurbishment works.
This will no doubt involve getting the cabins refurbished to the specification that Global Airlines wants it ahead of it’s launch, which is expected to be at some point next year.
Looking ahead, all eyes will be on how this process will go, as well as when A380 #1 will have such work completed as well.
What remains clear is that slowly but surely, Global Airlines is beginning to prepare itself for a historic launch which aims not just to be popular, but also to shut down the scepticism placed on the carrier’s by those hesitant about start-up carriers in the UK.
