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.
