Up in the sky! First A380 for ANA

Up in the sky! First A380 for ANA

ANA Holdings Inc. placed a firm order for three A380s in 2016, becoming the first customer for the superjumbo in Japan. The first delivery is scheduled early 2019, and the A380 will initially be operated on the popular Tokyo-Honolulu route.

Today, the first A380 for All Nippon Airways (ANA) took to the skies, completing a maiden flight from the Final Assembly Line (FAL) in Toulouse, France to the Airbus site in Hamburg, Germany. The aircraft is now being prepared for cabin installation and painting in the airline’s special A380 livery.

The A380 is the most efficient solution to meet growth on the world’s most heavily-travelled routes, carrying more passengers with fewer flights at lower cost and with less emissions while offering passengers more personal space.

To date, Airbus has delivered 229 A380s, with the aircraft now in services with 14 airlines worldwide. In 2017, Airbus generated revenues of € 59 billion restated for IFRS 15 and employed a workforce of around 129,000.
