All Nippon Airways’ first A380 has
rolled out of the final assembly line in Toulouse, France.
The aircraft has been moved to an outside
station where various ground tests will be undertaken in
preparation for first flight in the coming weeks.
Once those are completed the aircraft
will be transferred to the Airbus facilities in Hamburg for
cabin installation and painting.
ANA placed a firm order of 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 popular Tokyo-Honolulu route.
To date, Airbus has delivered 229 A380s, with
the aircraft now in service with 14 airlines worldwide.
