Hi Fly to get first A380 by June

Portuguese wet-lease, emergency , and contract airline Hi Fly is to take delivery of one of the former Singapore Airlines A380’s.

The airline said it would be looking to take more after a period trialing the first.

Hi Fly is the first airline to take delivery of a second hand A380, although British Airways has suggested it would consider doing so in the future.

Hi Fly had been aiming for one or two of the German Dr Peters owned aircraft Singapore returned, but couldn’t reach agreement. They opted instead for one of the Doric owned units.
