Thai Airways' first Airbus A380 aircraft bearing the carrier's livery has been rolled out of the Airbus paint shop in Hamburg.

The roll out marks the completion of painting and cabin installation work on the aircraft, which is entering the final phase of ground and flight tests, Airbus said in a statement.

Airbus will undertake advanced general performance tests with the aircraft before preparing it for delivery in the third quarter.

The Thai flag carrier, which has a firm order for six aircraft, will be the ninth A380 operator. It will also take delivery of its second and third A380 this year.
