Lack of customers leads the Airbus A380 program into the unknown

lunes, 11 de julio de 2016

The four-engined A380 has been difficult to sell because of its high fuel consumption and bad program start timing. When the world was hit by economic crisis in 2008, increased oil prices discouraged carriers to invest in the aircraft that can seat between 489 and 615 travelers. Aviation experts claim, that Airbus may not recoup its initial €25 billion investment and, if the production rate of the A380 aircraft falls bellow 30 airliners per year, the company may even have to shut down the program.
