M’sia Airlines to keep 6 super jumbo A380s


SINGAPORE: Malaysia Airlines plans to keep the six superjumbo A380s ‘at least’ until 2018, says its Chief Executive Officer Christoph Mueller.

Nonetheless, without deliberating on the plan, Mueller said that “we don’t have A380s in excess.”

According to recent reports, the airline was trying to dispose off its six A380s, four of which were in service and the other two, idle.

“We have no problem with the aircraft at this point of time,” he told reporters on the sidelines of the Singapore Airshow Aviation Leadership Summit here today.

Asked on the possible addition of A350 aircraft to serve long haul destinations, he just replied “maybe.”
