The A380 has been winning over business and leisure passengers alike since its service introduction in 2007, providing levels of comfort and reliability that have led travelers to specifically request flights on Airbus’ 21st century flagship – which is in operation with carriers around the globe.
The double-deck A380 is the world’s largest commercial aircraft flying today, with capacity to carry 525 passengers in a comfortable three-class configuration, and up to 853 in a single-class configuration that provides wider seats than its competitor. Overall, the A380’s two decks offer 50 per cent more floor surface than any other high-capacity aircraft.
With superior range of 15,700 km., the A380 is the ideal solution to alleviate traffic congestion at busy airports. It has two full-length passenger levels with true widebody dimensions: a main deck and an upper deck, which are conveniently linked by fixed stairs forward and aft.
In a worldwide airline market that is highly focused on congested megacities while doubling in size every 15 years, the A380 can win airlines larger shares of growth with the best cabin in the sky.
This flagship Airbus jetliner is proven to attract high-revenue travellers day after day, stimulating demand and offering the greatest capacity per departure slot, along with providing comfort aloft unmatched by any other jetliner. It has the widest and most spacious seating in all classes of service, something that passengers opt for when they have the choice.
A380s are flown by members of all three major global alliances, ensuring that both point-to-point and connecting passengers can build mileage accounts with their favourite frequent flyer programmes.
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 its standard 18.5-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 built-in cabin arrangement flexibility allows airlines to differentiate their products and develop solutions for specific market mixes. Operators are making innovative uses of the aircraft’s decks, including suites on Singapore Airlines’ A380s – which have separate sitting and sleeping areas, and contain a full-sized bed.
