Since the A380's entry into service in 2007, the aircraft has joined the fleets of ten world class carriers. The aircraft is capable of flying up to 8,500 nautical miles or 15,700 kilometres non-stop, carrying more people at lower cost and with less impact on the environment. The spacious, quiet cabin and smooth ride have made the A380 a firm favourite with both airlines and passengers, resulting in higher load factors wherever it flies.
The total A380 fleet has accumulated nearly one million flight hours in over 110,000 flights. To date some 40 million passengers have already enjoyed the unique experience of flying on board an A380. Every five minutes, an A380 either takes off or lands at one of the 30 airports where it operates today and the network is constantly growing.
