Airbus, manufacturer of the world’s largest airliner has launched a website that now makes flying on the iconic double decker a matter of choice, not chance.
Airbus says the A380 is the passengers’ favourite aircraft and that 60% of them are willing to make an extra effort to fly on it*. The iflyA380.com, launched by Airbus this week, is the unique website for travellers who want to experience the famous aircraft.
Marc Fontaine, Airbus Digital Transformation Officer commented: “As a global leading aviation company we are exploring new digital avenues and IflyA380.com illustrates this transformation journey. Booking systems today do not allow the passengers to easily choose their preferred aircraft and we decided to fill that gap by easing the access to the iconic A380 aircraft, for everybody. For the first time, a booking service puts the aircraft type as the criteria for flight selection. This seamless experience is a win for Airbus A380, it’s a win for the airlines operators and it’s a win for the passengers.”
The booking assistant is the only place where all 13 A380 operators can present the on-board services they offer and the destinations they serve. Inspirational information about each city will also help travellers choose their next vacation. Airbus said it is simple to use as passengers just have to select their departure and destination airports/cities, dates and class of travel, the number of travellers and hit ‘search’. They can then click on the desired flight and be taken seamlessly to the website of the selected airline, allowing users to book securely and with confidence at no extra cost.
