Airbus is planning a stretched version of its mega A380 commercial airplane, the director of the program told an Australian television station.
First deliveries are planned for 2020.
The stretched airplane could carry 100 more passengers than the current A380, which carries from 400 to 600 passengers.
The Airbus A380 director, Richard Carcaillet, told Ten News that the jet is “environmentally more responsible,” because fewer planes will serve a growing demand for air travel.
“It’s a way to grow without creating more congestion,” Carcaillet told the station.
