Airbus A380 Family New Generation


Airbus’ 21st Century flagship A380 has been revolutionising air transport since its service introduction in 2007, bringing unmatched performance and economic efficiency to airline customers worldwide.
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 its range of 8,300 nautical miles, the A380 is the ideal solution to alleviate traffic congestion at busy airports, while coping with market growth.  It has two full-length passenger levels with true widebody dimensions: a main deck and an upper deck, which are linked by fixed stairs forward and aft.

Unrivalled efficiency

In addition to offering unequalled levels of passenger comfort, the A380 provides the lowest fuel burn per seat – which allows airlines to substantially reduce CO2 emissions while achieving profitable, sustainable growth for decades to come.  

It also is the quietest long-haul aircraft flying today, generating 50 per cent less noise on departure than the nearest competitor, as well as three to four time less when landing, all while carrying 40 per cent more passengers.
The A380 has proven itself as a true revenue generator for a broad spectrum of leading carriers, and promises even greater potential with as these current airlines and future customers explore the jetliner’s full opportunities on a range of route network segments.  And whether it is being used to reduce the number of flights and create real cost savings while maintaining capacity, or to offer more capacity with fewer take-off slots, the A380 brings operators a wide range of commercial advantages.

Higher profitability

The A380’s introduction on a full variety of routes is creating thousands of extra seats for airline customers while saving millions of dollars annually in operating costs. With this new-generation aircraft, operators are able to increase capacity by around 20 per cent at no overall extra cost during a week’s schedule, or maintain the same capacity but flying it at 15 to 20 per cent lower cost per trip and per seat.
Both decks offer widebody comfort on the A380, and they can be easily configured to match individual airlines’ needs and branding.  The A380’s spaciousness and economics allow new cabin products and services to be offered.  For example, in a typical three-class layout, it is possible to include features as lounges, a welcome desk, a library area and different bars.

Optimised landing performance

Airbus introduced its innovative Brake to Vacate technology on the A380, which allows the flight crew to more effectively manage the approach and landing and to pre-select the optimum runway exit.  This can reduce runway occupancy time by up to 30 per cent – significantly increasing the number of aircraft that can be handled by the world’s airports.
Two new-generation engine options (the Engine Alliance GP7200 and Rolls-Royce Trent 900), combined with an advanced wing and landing gear design make the A380 significantly quieter than today's largest airliner – enabling this very large aircraft to meet strict local regulations at airports around the world.
