The A380 is a modern icon that has flown over 400,000 revenue flights carrying over 170 million passengers. This includes more than 300 commercial flights per day, which take off or land around the world every two minutes.
Flying with the A380 is a unique experience that introduces you to new standards of in-flight comfort, from first class to economy. As the world’s largest and most spacious passenger aircraft, its cabin allows passengers to stretch out in the widest seats in a calm and relaxing environment. With the unparalleled freedom it gives passengers to move, it’s no surprise that the A380 is the preferred choice in all cabin classes.
The double-deck A380 truly is a marvel of science and engineering, making excellent use of its space to offer passengers attainable luxury. With enough room to install stylish first-class suites, eye-catching bar or business areas, beautifully inviting cabin lighting and the quietest cabin in the sky, you will enjoy every aspect of the flight and, thanks to innovative cabin air supply technology, will arrive at your destination feeling inspired and ready to go.
The future of long-distance air travel
The double-deck A380 is the largest commercial aircraft flying today. With air traffic continuing to double every 15 years, the A380 is the perfect aircraft to meet the needs of the passengers of today and tomorrow while also delivering the level of efficiency necessary to protect the environment for future generations.
It has two full-length decks with widebody dimensions, meaning its two passenger levels offer an entire deck’s worth of additional space compared to the next largest twin-engine jetliner. With more seats than any other aircraft, the A380 offers solutions to overcrowding; needing fewer journeys to carry 60 per cent more passengers, making it the perfect solution to airport congestion, fleet plan optimization and traffic growth. Protecting our planet and ensuring we will continue to have a world full of beautiful places to visit in the future.
