The first Airbus A380 for Japanese carrier Skymark Airlines has made its first flight from Toulouse.

The aircraft, wearing Skymark colours on its tail but otherwise painted in primer, will fly to Hamburg for cabin fit-out and painting, before delivery later this year. Skymark will be the first Japanese carrier to operate the A380, and will utilise it mainly on routes between Tokyo Narita and North America.
