Talk about travel and lifestyle at its best, the new British Airways Airbus A380 is a lifestyle experience with its innovative design and style.It was only fitting that international model Georgia May Jagger front the launch of the airline’s South African advertising campaign, with South Africa’s very own Springboks Jean de Villiers and Bryan Habana, who were joined by England captain Chris Robshaw.

The British Airways A380 has made travelling to distant land a lifestyle experience one itches to do just to get into that all new luxury liner. The A380 will begin flying to Johannesburg on 12 February 2014, although the inaugural flight is likely to be earlier.

World Traveller fares from South Africa start at R8 380, World Traveller Plus from R15 380, Club World from R30 380 and First from R53 380. The airline will initially operate three A380 services to Johannesburg a week which will increase from March 10 2014 to six flights. These flights will be part of the airline’s normal schedule to South Africa’s commercial capital.

Since British Airways took delivery of its first superjumbo earlier this month, Johannesburg is only the third A380 route to be confirmed, after Los Angeles and Hong Kong.  Another two aircraft, from a total order of 12, are due to be delivered before the end of the year.

British Airways’ A380s can accommodate 469 customers across four cabins. Customers in First will be seated in front of the main deck. The cabin offers 14 seats and is evolved from the existing First class. Club World (business class) customers can choose from 44 seats on the main deck, or 53 seats on the upper deck. The upper-deck seats will be arranged in a new 2:3:2 configuration across the cabin. The 55 World Traveller Plus (premier economy) seats are located on the upper deck, while World Traveller (economy) customers can choose seats on both the main and upper deck.

The aircraft’s innovative design makes it much quieter during take-off and landing and the cabin has the lowest noise level of any existing passenger aircraft. The advanced air conditioning system, with 15 different temperature control zones, contributes to reduced noise levels and customer comfort, with cabin air being changed every three minutes. In addition the A380 It offers exceptional fuel efficiency compared to the aircraft it is replacing.

Bryan Habana, who is taking up a three-year contract with French club side Toulon, says that with the A380 flying to South Africa home won’t seem nearly as far away.

“There are lots of reasons I like flying British Airways and now there’s another one.”

After a tour of the aircraft, Jean de Villiers was particularly impressed by its size: “Seventy-three meters from nose to tail; that’s half the length of Newlands and big enough to carry 31 rugby teams halfway around the world.”

Georgia May Jagger, who visited South Africa for the first time in June last year, said: “I’ve been looking for an excuse to explore more of that incredible country and this provides the perfect opportunity.”

The A380 is part of a £5bn investment over five years in new aircraft, smarter cabins, elegant lounges, new technologies and onboard catering to improve the travelling experience and make it easier, more convenient and more comfortable in the air and on the ground.
