Norwegian Air Shuttle brings Airbus A380 superjumbo to the masses

A second-hand Airbus superjumbo will fly for Norwegian Air Shuttle later this month, giving a model once seen as the epitome of luxury a first taste of discount travel.

The A380 has been drafted in to operate between London Gatwick airport and New York’s John F Kennedy hub after the grounding of some of Norwegian’s own Boeing 787s, according to a spokesman for the airline.

The trans-Atlantic stint comes after the Scandinavian arm of Thomas Cook Group this week used the double-decker to transport holidaymakers between Copenhagen and Cyprus and Oslo and Majorca to help cope with its own plane shortage. The jet was released by Singapore Airlines after a decade of service and is the first used A380 to find a new role.

Norwegian plans to operate the world’s biggest passenger plane for several weeks as its sidelined 787 Dreamliners undergo maintenance to resolve glitches with Rolls-Royce engines.
