Airbus brings the eco-efficient A380 to Farnborough Air Show


7 August 2008 Headline news

Airbus is taking part in the International Farnborough air show near London, from 14th to 20th July 2008.



The world's most advanced and fuel-efficient passenger aircraft, the A380, is taking part in daily flying demonstrations and will remain on static display throughout the week.



The A380 test aircraft MSN004 on display is powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines and recently successfully completed the world's first ever flight by a commercial aircraft using a liquid fuel processed from gas (Gas to Liquids - GTL).



Airbus will hold a press conference on Thursday (time to be confirmed) at the EADS press auditorium. Journalists are welcome to visit Airbus media relations during the show at the dedicated press chalet (row C - 24-26)



Visitors to the show will learn about Airbus' growing product line at the stand of Airbus parent company EADS (Hall 4 - G15), which features 1/20th scale models of the A330 Family, A350 and A380.



Airbus' on-going commitment to eco-efficiency is highlighted through a series of videos showing the entire life cycle of an aircraft and also through real examples of the company's environmentally friendly aircraft recycling techniques.
