Where Does the Airbus A340-500 Fly? December 2013 Network Update

Every month The HUB will provide an update on the current A340-500 flight schedule and the routes the aircraft is being deployed upon.  This list for December 2013 was compiled from OAG Analyser on November 30, 2013 and changes to planned routes are likely.  In the table below we also feature the A340-500 network size of each operator and the top destinations served by the aircraft.  Our latest analysis shows that A340-500 capacity rose 13.7 per cent in December 2013 versus November 2013.

NOTE: Iberia also listed as operating the A340-500 but that is due to the use of the 345 code for some of its A340-600 fleet.
