Accessible luxury

Airbus is constantly evolving the A380 cabin to provide travelers with a spacious, comfortable interior that allows its operators to remain at the pinnacle of elegant air travel. 

Including a cabin designed with passengers in mind, many A380 operators are taking advantage of the aircraft’s unique space to provide superior comfort in every section – from a spacious economy class featuring Airbus’ modern comfort standard of 18-inch wide seats to the latest offerings for business and first class travellers.  

With its four-class standard layout, the A380 also accommodates the growing demand for a premium economy section – which is driven by the large percentage of business travellers flying in economy. At the same time, business class has evolved toward full-flat beds – and the A380 provides space for the most unique offerings available. The A380 allows carriers to further distinguish their first-class cabin with a truly distinct luxury product that only this double-deck jetliner can provide.  

Capable of incorporating unique features from private suites and even The Residence by Etihad to refined bar and social areas, no matter which class you sit in, luxury is the standard. Flying on the A380 is a superior experience already enjoyed by over 190 million passengers around the globe, who understand the one-of-a-kind flying experience offered by Airbus’ A380, the definition of comfort in all classes of service.

Passenger comfort is enhanced by numerous advanced technologies equipped on Airbus’ A380, including modern lighting systems and new standards of in-flight entertainment. 

Cabin air is recycled every two minutes to keep the atmosphere fresh, while natural light is provided by 220 cabin windows. Six high-level air outlets – as opposed to the industry standard of two – keep customers refreshed during all phases of flight.

Space to be

Designed for the modern standard of comfort, the A380 meets the requirements of passengers travelling in all service classes – today and into the future.  With the Airbus standard 18-inch wide seats in economy, as well as the latest options in business and first class, the efficient A380 offers the perfect space to just be you. 

Coupled with its optimal cabin height, the widest main deck cabin delivers 15 per cent more personal space for passenger storage, increased head room and even wider stairs – altogether creating a welcoming environment perfectly suited to help you enjoy your flight. The A380’s built-in flexibility allows airlines to differentiate their product and develop solutions for a diverse range of markets.
