Airbus ceases production of the largest aircraft in the world

Since 2007 the largest passenger aircraft in the world was considered the Airbus A380. Being a very comfortable and quiet, he won the love of many passengers, but the airlines weren't interested because of the crazy prices to 489 million dollars. As shown, an affordable and compact Airbus and more preferable to fly than the expensive giants with hundreds of locations. In this regard, the Airbus A380, it has been decided to remove from the production tape. It will happen very soon — in 2021.

Airbus still has orders but neither do not justify long-term production. About ten years ago, the company hoped to produce about 1,200 copies of the plane, but in fact produced only 234. Most orders made airline of the United Arab Emirates, but in recent years they even reduced demand.

Currently, the Airbus A380 has 16 airports, but none of them is the USA. However, giant planes appear periodically in the territory of the state, as they often take passengers from other countries in Los Angeles, new York and Miami.

Features Airbus A380

The length of the Airbus A380 is 73 meters and the wingspan — 80 meters. The number of seats depends on the modification of aircraft and reaches 850 units. As a rule, airlines are limited to 500 seats, and a new place will furnish bars, shops and even beauty salons. Etihad Airways has the most luxurious modification in which there are bedrooms, living rooms and even bathrooms.

One of the main features of Airbus A380 are considered quiet salons. Some pilots have even transferred this feature to the cons, because during sleep they didn't hear the familiar roar of the engine, and crying in the cabin of children and the conversations of passengers.

Airbus CEO Tom Enders called the cessation of the production of "painful", as they put a lot of effort into the development of this giant. However, passengers do not despair — the aircraft will continue to operate even after the cessation of production.
