Airbus has released an Android version* of the iflyA380 app, already available for iOS users, bringing the experience of flying on the iconic A380 to even more passengers.

In recent years, new technological advances have transformed the expectations of always-connected travellers who demand super convenience, personalization and speed of use in every aspect of their travel booking. So far, travellers have been able to control every aspect of their trip, except for one of the most important elements – the plane they fly in.

The popular iflyA380.com booking assistant has changed this by offering travellers a unique platform to search and book flights on the A380, the passengers’ favourite jetliner. Building on the website’s success - millions of visitors since launch in 2016 – the iflyA380 app, launched in March 2018 for iOS users, brings more features and content to smartphone users who have downloaded the app over 40,000 times in less than 6 months.
