What is A380 Plus??

As we all know Airbus 380 is the worlds largest commercial aircraft and one of the most attractive aircraft. Airbus has developed A380 and introduced a newer version of A380 named as A380 Plus.

There are few significant variations when compared to the older version and the major change that they have done is the design change of the wing tip. It is a split wing tip and airbus claims that it will offer reduced induced drag and hence less tip vortices. This will result in a 4% less fuel burn.
In the older version total of 497 passengers were easily accommodated and in the Plus version this figure has incremented to 575.

With this new design change and improved capabilities Airbus will receive more orders for A380 as they have not received a single order for A380 in this year.
