Qantas resumes A380 flights to USA

SINGAPORE : Qantas has resumed its A380 service to USA, which was grounded last November after a mid-air engine blast. QF93 left Melbourne at noon on Sunday. The airline said the resumption of its Los Angeles-Australia route comes after extensive engineering analysis and consultation with Rolls-Royce, Airbus and the European and Australian regulators. Chief Executive Officer Alan Joyce said the airline is progressively re-introducing A380s to its network as engine inspection continues. Qantas will operate 14 A380 services per week for the remainder of January, and frequency will steadily increase from February onwards. Qantas grounded its fleet of six A380s for intensive safety checks more than two months ago after the mid-air engine blast which forced the Singapore-Australia flight to turn back to Singapore.
