Airbus super jumbo arrives in Bangkok on Asian tour

The world's largest passenger jet, the Airbus A380, arrived Friday in Bangkok, the first leg of its four-city Asian tour, as the European aero giant aimed to expand growth against competitor Boeing.

The double-decker plane landed at Bangkok's glitzy Suvarnabhumi Airport from Toulouse, southern France, where the European plane maker is headquartered, a Thai public relation firm for Airbus said.

The super jumbo will make a round trip from Bangkok to Thailand's northern tourist hub, Chiang Mai, Saturday, and then fly to Hanoi on Sunday.

The A380 will be a showcase of Asia's largest air show in Hong Kong as it is expected to fly across the city's famous Victoria harbour on Monday. The plane will then arrive Wednesday in Seoul, the last stop of the Airbus promotional tour.

Singapore Airlines is set to become the first to fly the A380 on October 25 with a flight from Singapore to Sydney. AFP reports
