A three-class layout provides 555 seats. A typical upper deck layout provides 96 business- and 103 economy-class seats. The main deck provides 22 first-class seats and 334 economy-class seats.
Two stairwells link the passenger decks. A lifting system between passenger decks provides access for passengers with limited mobility. There is also a cargo hoist linking the two passenger decks.
The size of the Airbus A380 makes possible a number of configurations and passenger facilities. Singapore Airlines (launch customer) has a configuration for 471 passengers – 12 first class ‘suites’ and 311 economy seats on the main deck, 60 business class seats and 88 economy seats on the upper deck.
There are eight full-size doors on either side of the aircraft. On both sides, there are two doors on the main deck and one door on the upper deck forward of the wing that can be used simultaneously for embarking or disembarking passengers. For speedy baggage transfer, two hold loading belts, one at the forward end and one at the rear end under the fuselage can be used simultaneously. Matsushita Avionics Systems has been selected to supply its next-generation eX2 in-flight entertainment system.
Naturally every airline customer will have their own cabin layouts, furnishings and colours chosen when they order their version of the Airbus A380. Airbus have showcased some of the modern advances in aircraft interior design and technology creating a sensation of freshness and space.
