Airbus has launched a website for travellers who want to experience flight on its A380 double deck aircraft.

The website is the only place where all 13 A380 operators present the on-board services they offer and the destinations they serve.

Inspirational information about each city also helps travellers choose their next vacation. Once at the website, users select their departure and destination airports/cities, dates and class of travel, the number of travellers and hit ‘search’. They can then click on the desired flight and be taken seamlessly to the website of the selected airline, allowing users to book securely at no extra cost.

“As a global leading aviation company we are exploring new digital avenues and illustrates this transformation journey.” said Marc Fontaine, Airbus digital transformation officer. “Booking systems today do not allow the passengers to easily choose their preferred aircraft and we decided to fill that gap by easing the access to the iconic A380 aircraft, for everybody. For the first time, a booking service puts the aircraft type as the criteria for flight selection. This seamless experience is a win for Airbus A380, it’s a win for the airlines operators and it’s a win for the passengers.”

On May 1, 2016, YVR welcomed its first A380 service with British Airways’ inaugural A380 flight from London Heathrow. British Airways chose Vancouver as its first Canadian destination to be served by the A380, flying daily summer service between YVR and London Heathrow airport.

The A380 is the world’s largest, most spacious airliner. Seating 544 passengers in standard layout, the aircraft has two full decks, allowing it to offer wider seats, broader aisles, and more floor space. More than 130 million passengers have already enjoyed the experience of flying on board an A380. At present, 230 airports can accommodate the A380 around the world and every three minutes an A380 either takes off or lands.
