British Airways’ first A380 arrives at the Paris air show #PAS13

The first Airbus A380 for British Airways arrived at the Paris air show today.

Flightglobal reported back in March that the airframer was in discussions with the carrier to bring the aircraft to the show, having previously done the same with a Korean Air and Malaysia Airlines A380.

BA is due to take delivery of its first A380, configured with 469 seats, in July. The aircraft is powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines.

Airbus says that the aircraft “will take centre stage during the first few days of the show”, to be follow by one of the airframer’s flight-test aircraft.
