Part of the solution
Meeting the increasingly-important environmental standards for air transportation today and tomorrow were among the key design elements for Airbus’ 21st century flagship A380 – which has continually exceeded these high expectations since its 2007 entry into revenue service.
The A380 embodies 30 years of Airbus experience in applying intelligent innovation to new products – resulting in its industry-leading performance in terms of eco-efficiency operations.
Did you know?
- The A380 is 15 tonnes lighter than it would be if made entirely of metal.
- The 4400m2 surface of the A380 is covered in three layers of paint weighing around 500kg.
- During take-off the A380 wing will flex upwards by over 4m.
The air in the A380 cabin is changed every two minutes, and the temperature can be selected between 18 and 30 degrees.
An A380 takes off or lands every three minutes.
