25 July 2013 by Luke McCormick

British Airways has announced plans to operate the A380 superjumbo on flights to South Africa from February next year.

The London Heathrow to Johannesburg service will initially operate three times a week when it launches on 12 February. This will increase to six flights a week by 10 March.

Johannesburg is the third destination the airline plans to serve with the A380 after scheduled services to Los Angeles and Hong Kong begin this year.

British Airways' A380s will accommodate 469 customers across four cabins. Customers in First will be seated at the front of the main deck. The cabin will offer 14 seats and is evolved from the current First class with 30 per cent more personal space and 60 per cent more personal stowage.

Club World (business class) customers can choose from 44 seats on the main deck, or 53 seats on the upper deck. These upper deck seats will feature a new 2:3:2 configuration across the cabin.

The 55 World Traveller Plus (premium economy) seats will be located on the upper deck, while World Traveller (economy) customers can choose seats on both the main and upper deck.

British Airways has ordered 12 A380s for delivery by 2016. Three will arrive this year followed by a further five in 2014.
