Flying like sardines

Air Austral and Airbus signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the purchase of two A380. But this aircrafts don´t follow the “luxury to the max” concept of SIA, Emirates or Quantas. Air Austral wants to order them in the single-class configuration with 840 seats.

“Our vision is to provide a low cost-high quality service on the heavy traffic route between La Reunion and Paris and the A380 allows us to make this vision a reality,” said Gerard Etheve, President of Air Austral.
