The comfort of an Air France superjumbo
Stepping on board an Air France Airbus A380 means the guarantee of an exceptional trip. On board, the 516 passengers enjoy optimal travel comfort and exceptional facilities. 220 windows fill the cabin with natural light, and changing lighting moods allow you to cross time zones without feeling tired. In addition, six bars throughout the aircraft allow passengers to meet up during the flight. As the cabin is five decibels quieter than industry standards, the A380 is a particularly quiet aircraft. It features the latest technologies in terms of entertainment and comfort. External images are broadcast live throughout the flight using three cameras located at the front, bottom and rear of the aircraft.
Today, Air France's 10 Airbus A380s already fly to 8 other destinations: Abidjan in Côte d'Ivoire, Johannesburg in South Africa, New York-JFK, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington in the United States, Mexico City in Mexico and Shanghai in China.
