After presenting you the largest commercial passenger plane from Boeing - Boeing 747, today I tell you about the Airbus A380, the largest passenger plane on Airbus. Currently, the Airbus A380 is the air giant, the largest passenger aircraft in series production. And the only plane with 2 complete decks.

Airbus A380 can fly a maximum distance of 15200km

The aircraft is four-seater and offers long-haul flights up to 15.200 km. It can fly on very long transoceanic and transcontinental flights. It is the only complete floor plane, being very easy to recognize at an airport. Each deck has two colors, the aircraft being certified for operations with up to 880 passengers in a single class.

The aircraft is a true work of art of technology. Its dimensions are worthy of the record book: 73 m length, 79,8 m wingspan, 24,1 m height and 7,14 m fuselage width. It can fly at a maximum altitude of 13000m, with a speed of about 900 Km / h, at a maximum distance of 15.200km.

The first flight was made in 2005, and the first commercial flight on 25 October 2007, on the route Singapore - Sydney. The first airline to receive an Airbus A380 in the fleet is Singapore Airlines. Currently, there is only the model Airbus A380-800, but there are rumors announcing a A380-900 and even A380-1000. The very large wings allow the fuselage to be adjusted.

I invite you to watch a documentary made by National Geographic and see the stages of construction, how the airplane was tested, how the engines are tested, the sanitary system, how the first model was assembled, etc.
