2 November 2011 News in brief

The vertical tail section for the first Thai Airways International (THAI) A380 has been painted with the airline’s orchid logo at Airbus facilities in Hamburg, Germany. The painting was completed over the weekend, and the section is now being prepared for shipment to Toulouse, France – where assembly of the aircraft is set to begin later this month. THAI will become the ninth A380 operator when it takes delivery of its first jetliner in the third quarter of 2012.
