The announcement not only represents a much needed capacity boost the busy summer season, but also is a product upgrade for Vancouver, a popular Canadian destination . It is also noteworthy to mention that now all four Canadian cities served by British Airways will have the latest aircraft in the fleet, with Toronto, Montreal and Calgary operating the 787 Dreamliner. Vancouver will become the fourth destination in North America to receive British Airways A380, which currently flies to Los Angeles, Washington D.C., San Francisco, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Singapore and from Miami beginning in October.

British Airways A380 fleet feature seating for 469 passengers, including 14 First Class Suites, 97 World Class (business class) seats, 55 World Traveller Plus (premium economy) and 303 World Traveller (economy class) seats.

"We're excited that our British Airways customers in Vancouver and the Pacific Northwest will be able to experience the newest addition to our fleet, with spacious cabins and extensive entertainment options. This is the culmination of a multi-billion pound investment in services that we know will further enhance the premium experience that our customers expect from British Airways" said Robert Antoniuk, British Airways' Vice President Operations West.

"It has been nine years since Airbus first brought the A380 to YVR as part of its test flight schedule, and since that time much has changed-but not our appetite to see this superjumbo in action on a commercial route," said Craig Richmond, President & CEO, Vancouver Airport Authority. "I wish to congratulate British Airways, one of our longest-standing airline partners, for putting an A380 on the YVR-Heathrow route. To see this incredible aircraft return to YVR with scheduled service will be very exciting."
