It’s been a while that Hi Fly operated its sole Airbus A380 for a scheduled flight: this will change as around 15:05 (UTC) today (14 April), the giant double deck aircraft (9H-MIP) took off from Beja Airport, Portugal destination Paris CDG. According to information on the official website of CDG airport, the A380 will operate for Air Senegal. A technical issue of Air Senegal’s only Airbus A330 Neo (9H-SZN) – operated by Hi Fly Malta but stuck at the airport of Dakar – lies behind the assistance of the Portuguese ACMI specialist.
A one-off operation or also for the coming days depends on the availability of the Airbus A330 Neo. Air Senegal’s flight HC404 is scheduled to leave for Dakar at 19:50.
It seems that Air Senegal will be the first African Airlines to fly the A380. Paris Aeroport Website shows, that the Paris CDG-Dakar flight, will be opt by an Hifly A380, replacing the Air Senegal A330 Neo (at least today) https://t.co/4pXxOf8Sfs
