Airbus A380

The French aerospace corporation Airbus launched a new project in the early 1990s to develop an ultra-high capacity airliner with more than 500 seats, as well as to challenge the dominance of the Boeing 747.

The first prototype made its maiden flight in 2005 and obtained airworthiness certificates in the following year. It was delivered to Singapore Airlines and entered service in 2007 between Singapore and Sydney. Until August 2019, 239 units were built and delivered to customers.

The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body airliner with a unique, full-width upper deck extending the entire length of the passenger cabin. The Airbus A380-800 has 550 m² of usable floor space, 40% more than the rival Boeing-747-8. This enormous airliner can carry up to 853 passengers in all-economy class layout.
