The first of five Airbus A380s for China Southern Airlines has completed its maiden flight after completion of the final assembly and system tests in Toulouse, France.

The aircraft flew from Toulouse to Hamburg, Germany, where the cabin will be installed and it will be painted in full China Southern livery.

China Southern Airlines will become the seventh A380 operator, with delivery of the aircraft scheduled for later this year.
