A380 flies today from Sydney to Singapore

Count down to the world’s first A380 commercial flight

For a second now (and only a second because I can’t stand the congestion), I wish I lived in Sydney. Today, the world’s first commercial Airbus A380 flight going to take place between Sydney Australia and Singapore (flight SQ380). The charity event organized by Singapore Airlines and hundreds of sponsors marks a pretty proud moment in aviation and engineering history. Regular three-per-week service will begin on Sunday the 28th between Sydney, Singapore and London.

The tickets were auctioned on eBay raising over S$1.9M (equiv. US$1.3M) in donations, all of which are going to be split between a Singaporean, Australian and international humanitarian organization.

I look forward to flying in one of these in the future. Hopefully the inflight entertainment system won’t disappoint. 😉

  1. What a beautiful plane! I have been anticipating this day for 3 years; I wish I had enough money to ride on one of those things :)

    Anywho, I hear it’s very comfortable inside, anyone want to spare $20000?

  2. Nice way to raise money for charities.

    Every plane has an in-flight entertainment system: a window.

    As for the 787, I hope it’ll fly soon.

  3. Wow! I traveled by plane by first time yesterday. And it was a small plane… loved it. Amazing experience… So one of this new ones may be even nicer!
