Paris Air Show 2017: Airbus unveils plans for A380plus

Airbus is presenting a development study for an enhanced A380, to be known as the A380plus.

The study includes aerodynamic improvements in particular new, large winglets and other wing refinements that allow for up to four per cent fuel burn savings.

Added to an optimised A380 maintenance programme and the enhanced cabin features first shown at Aircraft Interiors Expo in April, the overall benefit is a 13 per cent cost per seat reduction versus today’s A380.
