Two Air France aircraft will sport this special 80th anniversary livery for a period of one year: an Airbus A380 and an Airbus A320.

“We have a very rich heritage, which we have built up over the years and which is a very strong competitive advantage. I am pleased that Airbus has chosen to take part in this event to sport the Air France 80th anniversary livery all over the world. It is also a great opportunity to share this anniversary with customers and staff” declared Frédéric Gagey, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Air France.

“We are particularly proud to be celebrating this 80th anniversary alongside Air France, illus-trating the success of this major European airline. From its earliest days Air France has de-monstrated its confidence in Airbus. Air France has operated the full range of Airbus aircraft, and will also be an operator of the latest generation A350 XWB in the coming years. We wish Air France all the best for a successful future” said Fabrice Brégier President and Chief Execu-tive Officer of Airbus.

The Airbus A380 is already setting new standards for air transport and the environment. In ad-dition to offering unequalled levels of passenger comfort, space and quietness inside and out-side the cabin, the Airbus A380 offers reduced emissions.
