Asiana A380 deployment schedule

The aircraft which will be registered as HL7625 will be deployed by Asiana starting June 13th on various routes as detailed below. Like every other airline which inducts a brand new aircraft type like the A380 or 787, for the first time, initially the airline will deploy the aircraft on shorter routes so that its crews can quickly build up their “number of landings performed” required for long haul flights.
