Facts & Figures

The A380 Global Success Drivers

Amedeo Visual - The A380 Global Success v2.1

The A380 Today

There are currently 124 x A380s in operations flying on 10 carriers.

The A380 orderbook comprises 324 orders from 20 customers with 8 consecutive years of re-orders.

Across the entire A380 network, there are more than 130 flights per day carrying around 1.5 million passengers per month.

The A380 has successfully completed 6+ years in service with 137,000+ revenue flights, 1.1 million flight hours and 50+ million passengers carried.

The A380 boasts a market share of about 90% compared to its nearest competitor the Boeing 747-8I.

Lowest Cost per Square Foot

On a cost per square foot basis, the A380 has a significant advantage relative to the 777-300ER and the future 777-9X.

Capturing Higher Yields

80% of routings operating an A380 have seen an increase in yields

Average yield delta of $3.1c. per RPK or approximately +30% fares

Offers New Market Revenue Opportunities to Airlines

Unconstrained demand (spill) recapture – large volumes of spill observed with all major carriers worldwide. Spill recapture will have a significant impact on the highest marginal yields.

Fare stimulation, economy-focused – demand can be stimulated with a reasonable reduction to price in the lower fare cabins.

Market expansion – airlines can leverage new or expanded premium cabin to increase yield per square foot by leveraging previously ignored distribution channels and O&D markets.

Market share shift – the A380 increases market share due to increased footprint that drives higher market presence.

Highest Seat Load Factor

The A380 is consistently capturing its seat share; there is no loss in load factor as revenue management systems strive to fill the aircraft.

The Right Aircraft at the Right Time

Slot, time zone constraints, and passenger preferences drive frequency concentration.

The larger the route, the more compelling it is to use larger aircraft due to slots and scheduling constraints as every airline would like to be part of the airport peak traffic waves.

The A380 Is Needed

2013

There are 225 x 400-seat and above aircraft routes today with 40 being underserved due to deployment of smaller aircraft and more than 125 being served with more than 18 year old aircraft offering inferior product to the A380

320 x B747-400 aircraft are currently in service with an average age of 18.5 years.

124 x A380s are currently in service with 200 on order (an orderbook of 324 aircraft in total).

2013

2021

There will be 410 x 400-seat and above aircraft routes in 2021, which will require additional 500 VLA.

There will be 145 x B747-400 still in service (assuming an average age of 25 years, 175 aircraft will be retired by 2021)

Assuming 324 x A380s in service (which reflect the current A380 orderbook).

Constraints to Frequency Growth

Frequency constraints at major airports will further strengthen the case for larger gauge aircraft.

Attractive Long-Term Industry Prospects

Air traffic has followed an upward trajectory, outpacing GDP, with only four years of negative growth since 1970. Strong growth in demand for aircraft is driven by emerging markets growth and replacement fleet demand in developed markets.

Shift from Ownership to Leasing

The aircraft leasing market share has grown from 23% in 2000 to 39% in 2012 and is expected to keep on growing. Even airlines with strong credits (e.g. Emirates and Singapore Airlines) and airlines with good access to capital markets (e.g. United and American) are leasing aircraft extensively.

Key Drivers

Access to lower cost of capital

Reduced capital commitment

Operational flexibility

Limited risk exposure and residual value management.
