Malaysia Airlines (MAS) expects to receive most of its Airbus A380 orders in 2012, and plans to operate the superjumbo jet to European cities.

The airline, which has six A380s on order, said it expects to take delivery of five of them in 2012. The remaining one will arrive in 2013. In 2010, MAS said that its first A380 will be delivered in April 2012.

MAS' A380s will "primarily serve the Kuala Lumpur-London and Kuala Lumpur-Amsterdam routes", said the carrier.

The airline has had the delivery of its A380s delayed several times, and has received compensation for the delays.
