Fate of Worlds Largest Aircraft Airbus A380 Rests on the UAE

Published

on

European Airbus Corporation may withdraw the world’s largest aircraft Airbus A380 if the authorities of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) refuse to purchase these aircrafts. The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by European conglomerate Airbus. Airbus A380 is the world’s largest passenger aircraft and these aircrafts may be phased out if UAE  (Emirates) deal fails, as per reports by the Reuters.

“If there is no deal with the Emirates, Airbus will begin the process to close the production of the Airbus A380,” Reuters quotes one of the interlocutors. It is indicated that the company considers this step logical in connection with the low demand for the aircraft.

According to agency sources, negotiations on the purchase of 36 Airbus A380 aircrafts worth about $16 billion took place last month, but both the parties did not reach an agreement. The consultations have already resumed, but at present “there are no visible positive signs”

Reuters notes that Airbus does not want to continue production without a guaranteed order from the UAE. Emirates, fearing for their investments, want to get a guarantee that the company will not stop production of the aircrafts for at least 10 years.

The UAE, according to the agency, is the largest customer of the Airbus A380 in the world: the country has concluded an agreement to supply 142 aircrafts and has already received more than 100 aircraft. Reuters specifies that if the decision to cease production of these aircrafts is taken, it will be implemented gradually, while Airbus will fulfill the orders already placed with it.

Airbus A380 is the largest passenger airliner in the world. Its first version has a maximum capacity of 853 people, a maximum takeoff weight of 575 tons, a wingspan of 79.7 m, a maximum range of 15.2 thousand km, a cruising speed of 945 km / h.
