The Airbus A380 is the largest passenger airliner in the world. It is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by the European corporation Airbus, a subsidiary of EADS. 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. It has two full-length passenger levels with true wide-body dimensions: a main deck and an upper deck, which are conveniently linked by fixed stairs forward and aft.

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.


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 times lower noise when landing, all while carrying 40 per cent more passengers. Inside the cabin, travellers have applauded the A380 for its extremely quiet cabin, which on average has half the sound energy of other aircraft. This is a key factor in stress-free flights, allowing passengers to arrive at their destination feeling refreshed.  


As of July 2011 the A380 has received 236 firm orders, of which 52 had been delivered. The largest order came from Emirates, which has 90 aircraft on order.
