ANA Holdings placed a firm order for three A380s in 2016, becoming the first customer for the superjumbo in Japan.

The first delivery is scheduled early in 2019, and the A380 will initially be operated on the Tokyo-Honolulu route.

 ANA’s A380s will feature a special ‘Honu’ Hawaiian green sea turtle livery, symbolizing good luck and prosperity.

Today, 222 A380s are operated by 13 airlines on 60 destinations, and 240 airports around the world can accommodate the A380.
