Press: Virgin to get A380 four years late

27th Oct 2006

European aircraft manufacturer Airbus will deliver six A380 aircraft to Virgin Atlantic in 2013, a four-year delay, the British company said. ‘Virgin Atlantic has reached an agreement in principle with Airbus to defer deliveries of its Airbus A380 aircraft until 2013,’ a spokeswoman for the airline told Agence France-Presse, specifying that that represented a delay of four years.

‘By then, we believe, the A380 will have proven its innovative design over several years in commercial service,’ she said.
