Qatar Airways has confirmed that Heathrow and Paris Charles De Gaulle will be the launch routes for its A380 superjumbos.
The Doha-based carrier has previously hinted that it will operate the superjumbo “on popular routes, especially in slot-constrained airports”, which was seen as a clear hint about Heathrow.
Qatar Airways has 13 A380s on order, with the first scheduled to enter service early in 2014. No official launch dates or schedules have been released yet.
The airline has previously said that the upper deck of the A380 will be fitted with eight seats in first class - the only aircraft in the next three years that Qatar will fit with a first class cabin - and 52 business class seats, along with a lounge area and a small economy section.
The entire main deck will be economy class, including the nose section, making a total of 517 seats on the aircraft.
