by Richa 26. August 2013 05:18

Air France has announced its decision to deploy yet another Airbus A380 on its Paris-Shanghai route. A380 is the modern, technically advanced, wide body, double-decker aircraft. Many airlines are gradually adding this aircraft to their fleet. The premier airline has plans to increase the frequency of these A380 planes to four times per week. Currently it is using the service of three A380 in its itinerary.

Beginning September 2, 2013 the A380 will fly between Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris and Pu Dong Airport in Shanghai. Passengers who wish to fly on this route can book Air France tickets and experience the pleasure of flying on a double decker plane. With the commencement of this service Air France will beat another European carrier Lufthansa to become the first airline to launch A380 between Europe and Shanghai.

As per the schedule, the superjumbo jet will depart Charles de Gaulle at 2320 hours and arrive in Shanghai at 1620 hours local time three times a week. The return flights will depart Pu Dong at 2320 hours and arrive in Paris at 0535 hours the next day. Early morning arrivals will allow the passengers to align their onward travels or the day ahead in an organized fashion. At present Air France operates two flights between Paris and Shanghai.
