The A380, which takes off or lands somewhere in the world every two minutes, will retain its status as a passenger-pleasing aircraft in the years to come thanks to Airbus’ top-level support for the double-deck airliner and its continued use by operators around the globe.
More than 300 million passengers have flown on A380s since the aircraft’s service entry in 2007, with 330-plus flights performed each day by the global fleet – providing ample opportunity for travellers to enjoy the most spacious cabin in the sky. The A380 currently is operated on 150 routes, while 400 airports worldwide are A380-compatible.
Over 240 A380s have been delivered to date. Among the latest operators is All Nippon Airways (ANA), with the Japanese carrier gearing up to receive its third A380 from Airbus, optimising flight services on the highly popular route connecting Tokyo’s Narita International Airport and Honolulu in the U.S. Hawaiian Islands.
