Hi Fly, the 14th operator of the iconic double-decker wide-body airliner, is displaying its A380 for the first time at Farnborough International Airshow 2018 (UK). The aircraft will be showcased at the airshow from the 19th to 22nd July on static display.
A big cause requiring a big messenger, Hi Fly has chosen the A380 to exhibit its very special livery supporting the environmental cause: “Save the Coral Reefs”.

Hi Fly, the Portuguese wet lease specialist, provides aircraft to airlines with crew, maintenance and insurance. The company has selected the A380, thereby opening up a new business model. Hi Fly operates an all Airbus fleet of 12 aircraft comprising one A321, four A330s, seven A340s and now one A380.
The A380 is an essential part of the solution to sustain air traffic growth, alleviating congestion at busy airports by transporting more passengers with fewer flights. The aircraft is the best way to capture growing world air traffic, which is doubling every 15 years. The flagship airliner can accommodate 575 passengers in four classes and offers a range of 8,000 nautical miles (15,000 kilometres).
The A380 has the unique capability to generate revenue, stimulate traffic and attract passengers.
The A380 is the world’s most spacious aircraft, offering wider seats, broader aisles and more personal space to passengers. Together with the quietest cabin and the smoothest flight, the A380 promises a unique passenger experience.
Around 250 million passengers have experienced the unique comfort of flying on board the aircraft so far. Every two minutes an A380 either takes off or lands at one of the 60 destinations that the aircraft serves.
