Airbus A380 Super Jumbo


The Airbus A380 is the largest serially produced aircraft in the world. Since October 2007, it entered service by several airlines, especially on long distance flights. The machine is approved for up to 873 people, most versions provide a maximum of 558 seats in three classes. Like the number of passengers also the maximum takeoff weight of 569 tons and the range of 15,200 km are huge. Each of the four aircraft engines provides a thrust of over 310 kN.
