A380 Orders

Production of the Airbus A380 has been in full swing at Airbus for close to a decade now and many of the airlines that have been on the order books are now taking delivery of their Super Jumbos.  The A380 order book is looking more like an established airliner now with many of the Super Jumbos now in service.  You can see exactly how many in the table further down this page.

The demand for these high capacity aircraft has softened somewhat in the last year or so and Airbus A380 orders have slowed down.

Below are the first 8 customers to take first delivery of these flag-ships of their fleets.
