Coming to Australia?

Japanese carrier Skymark Airlines has signed an MoU with Airbus for four A380s, with Australia listed as a possible destination for the aircraft.

“Its excellent takeoff and landing performance enables the A380 to operate on the shorter 2500m runways at Japan’s Narita and Tokyo Haneda airports carrying a full passenger payload and cargo to destinations in Europe, North America and Australia,” reads the November 12 statement from Airbus announcing the deal.

Engine choice and cabin seating configurations are yet to be revealed.
