The main sections of the first Airbus A380 for Japan’s
All Nippon Airways (ANA) have arrived at the Airbus final assembly
line in Toulouse, France.
The sections, which include six
subassemblies – the nose, central and aft fuselage sections, the tailplane,
and the two wings, arrived via a special convoy.
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
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.
