Paris Airshow for BA A380?

The Paris Air Show organisation is holding at press conference at The Royal Aeronautical Society in London on Tuesday (30 April). 

The Salon celebrates its 50th anniversary, what is now a biennial event once again taking place at Le Bourget north of Paris.

With the promised A350 not having yet flown it does look like Airbus and the show directorate may have managed to pull a rabbit out of the hat with the first public appearance of an Airbus A380 in British Airways colours.  The aircraft has flown.  It was assembled in Toulouse and then positioned to Hamburg for painting and interior installation.  Unlike all other Airbus A380s delivered to date, the BA machine will feature Business Class on both the main and upper decks.  How passengers board remains to be seen.

Over 2,000 exhibitors from 44 countries have booked to date.  All the chalet units and exhibition stands are reserved: 350 chalets, 51,000m2 of stand space in six halls and 43,000m2 of outside exhibition space.  Some 120 aircraft are registered and there will be 27 national pavilions occupying an area of almost 30,000m2.  Visitors and exhibitors will be able to enjoy free wi-fi access all over the venue. www.paris-air-show.com
