NOTE: Table below updated on 3 January 2018.


Author’s Note: As many have pointed out in the comments, there are some routes missing. That’s what I get for going to Airbus as the source. As such, this directory is a work-in-progress and I will be updating regularly as new information comes through. Hopefully it’s still a good source of information for you all!

The Airbus A380 has been in production for a little over 10 years and with the almost year-oldย rumors of the program shutting down for good, I thought it would be cool to take a bird’s eye view at the use of the A380 within North America.ย And since I’m on such a roll with lists today ๐Ÿ™‚

It should be noted that no major U.S. carrier flies the A380 at this time and the global leader with flights to North America is really no surprise – Emirates with eight:

The destinations of A380 flights from North America almost directly coincide with the airlines listed above, save for Qantas which splits its two flights into Sydney and Melbourne:

The North American city with the most originating A380 flights? Not surprising with LAX since it serves as a major hub to Asia:
