A new experience
With the A380, the sky is yours.
Airlines are continuously evolving their cabin offering to match travellers’ ever-changing needs and the A380’s spacious, comfortable interior allows its operators to remain at the leading-edge of air travel.
Many A380 operators are utilising the aircraft’s unique space to provide efficient segmentation – from a spacious economy class featuring Airbus’ modern comfort standard of 18-inch-wide seats to the latest offerings for business- and first-class travellers.
With its four-class standard layout, the A380 also accommodates the growing demand for a premium economy section – which is driven by the large percentage of business travellers flying in economy. At the same time, business class has evolved toward full-flat beds – and the A380 provides space for the most unique offerings available.
The A380 also allows carriers to further differentiate their first class cabin with a truly distinct luxury product that only this double-deck jetliner can offer, including such unique features as private suites and the Residence by Etihad.
Millions of passengers around the globe already have enjoyed the one-of-a-kind flying experience offered by Airbus’ A380, which is redefining the meaning of comfort in all classes of service.
The A380’s main deck cabin is wider than any airliner in service today, allowing for more spacious seats and aisles – along with open spaces and access to additional amenities such as business centres and bar/social areas.
Spaciousness for all
The A380 moves with the times – providing a unique experience in each class.
Designed for the modern standard of comfort, the A380 meets the requirements of passengers travelling in all service classes – today and into the future.
With at least the Airbus standard 18-inch wide seat in economy, as well as the latest options in business and first classes, the efficient A380 offers a true widebody experience for all. Coupled with its optimal cabin height, these key advantages provide more personal storage, better head room, and wider stairs.
The A380’s built-in flexibility allows airlines to differentiate their products and develop solutions for specific market mixes. Operators are making innovative uses of the aircraft’s decks, such as the Residence by Etihad suite on the carrier’s A380s – which has three separate rooms and 125 square feet (12 square metres).
The most comfortable cabin
Overall passenger comfort is enhanced by a number of additional technologies equipped on Airbus’ A380, including advanced lighting systems and new standards of in-flight entertainment.
Cabin air is recycled every two minutes to keep the atmosphere fresh, while natural light is provided by 220 cabin windows. Four high-level air outlets – as opposed to the industry standard of two – keep customers refreshed during all phases of flight.
