The 555 seat, double deck
Airbus A380 is the most
ambitious civil aircraft program
yet. When it enters service in
March 2006, the A380 will be
the world's largest airliner, easily
eclipsing Boeing's 747.
Airbus first began studies on a
very large 500 seat airliner in
the early 1990s. The European
manufacturer saw developing a
competitor and successor to the
Boeing 747 as a strategic play
to end Boeing's dominance of
the very large airliner market
and round out Airbus' product
The Future of
Aviation is here!
The AIRBUS A380
Airbus began engineering development work on such an
aircraft, then designated the A3XX, in June 1994. Airbus
studied numerous design configurations for the A3XX and
gave serious consideration to a single deck aircraft which
would have seated 12 abreast and twin vertical tails.
However Airbus settled upon a twin deck configuration,
largely because of the significantly lighter structure
Key design aims include the ability to use existing airport
infrastructure with little modifications to the airports, and
direct operating costs per seat 15-20% less than those
for the 747-400. With 49% more floor space and only
35% more seating than the previous largest aircraft,
Airbus is ensuring wider seats and aisles for more
passenger comfort. Using the most advanced
technologies, the A380 is also designed to have 10-15%
more range, lower fuel burn and emissions, and less
The A380 features an advanced version of the Airbus
common two crew cockpit, with pull-out keyboards for the
pilots, extensive use of composite materials such as
GLARE (an aluminium/glass fibre composite), and four
302 to 374kN (68,000 to 84,000lb) class Rolls-Royce
Trent 900 or Engine Alliance (General Electric/Pratt &
Whitney) GP7200 turbofans now under development.
Several A380 models are planned: the basic aircraft is
the 555 seat A380-800 (launch customer Emirates). The
590 ton MTOW 10,410km (5620nm) A380-800F freighter
will be able to carry a 150 tonne payload and is due to
enter service in 2008 (launch customer FedEx). Potential
future models will include the shortened, 480 seat
A380-700, and the stretched, 656 seat, A380-900.
On receipt of the required 50th launch order commitment,
the Airbus A3XX was renamed A380 and officially
launched on December 19, 2000. In early 2001 the
general configuration design was frozen, and metal
cutting for the first A380 component occurred on January
23, 2002, at Nantes in France. In 2002 more than 6000
people were working on A380 development.
On January 18, 2005, the first Airbus A380 was
officially revealed in a lavish ceremony, attended by
5000 invited guests including the French, German,
British and Spanish president and prime ministers,
representing the countries that invested heavily in
the 10-year, €10 billion+ ($13 billion+) aircraft
program, and the CEOs of the 14 A380 customers,
who had placed firm orders for 149 aircraft by then.
The out of sequence A380 designation was chosen
as the "8" represents the cross-section of the twin
decks. The first flight is scheduled for March 2005,
and the entry into commercial service, with Singapore
Airlines, is scheduled for March 2006.
Apart from the prime contractors in France,
Germany, the United Kingdom and Spain,
components for the A380 airframe are also
manufactured by industral partners in Australia,
Austria, Belgium, Canada, Finland, Italy, Japan,
South Korea, Malaysia, Netherlands, Sweden,
Switzerland and the United States. A380 final
assembly is taking place in Toulouse, France, with
interior fitment in Hamburg, Germany. Major A380
assemblies are transported to Toulouse by ship,
barge and road.
On July 24, 2000, Emirates became the first customer
making a firm order commitment, followed by Air
France, International Lease Finance Corporation
(ILFC), Singapore Airlines, Qantas and Virgin
Atlantic. Together these companies completed the 50
orders needed to launch the programme.
Later, the following companies also ordered the
A380: FedEx (the launch customer for the A380-
800F freighter), Qatar Airways, Lufthansa, Korean
Air, Malaysia Airlines, Etihad Airways, Thai Airways
Four prototypes will be used in a 2200 hours flight
test programme lasting 15 months.
