Pictures: ANA's first Airbus A380 rolls out of paint shop


Hamburg - All Nippon Airways' first Airbus A380 rolled out paint shop in Hamburg. The superjumbo dubbed "Flying Honu" will now undergo cabin installation and then flying test.

After a 21 day work at Hamburg Finkenwerder plant, the first Airbus A380 of Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways appeared out of the paint shop with its new livery. It is the first of three A380 ordered by ANA.

The new livery, which is named "Flying Honu" is an attribution to the Pacific green turtle. The airline will deploy the airplane on its busy leisure route Narita-Honolulu from May 2019.

ANA ordered three Airbus A380 in total. The other two will be painted in emerald green inspired by the crystal clear waters of the Hawaiian Ocean, and orange, an attribute to the beautiful Hawaiian sunsets.
