THAI’s First A380 Roll-Out from Paint Hangar
Thai Airways International (THAI)’s first Airbus A380-800 aircraft bearing the airline’s distinctive livery has been rolled out from the Airbus paint shop in Hamburg.
This important milestone marks the unveiling of the fully-painted, first Airbus A380 for Thailand’s national flag carrier. THAI’s symbol is an abstract image suggesting movement, inspired by the crown flower used in Thai handicraft work and Thai garlands used in traditional ceremonies such as weddings and auspicious events. Colors used are purple, magenta and gold representing, respectively, a Thai orchid, shimmering Thai silk and the brilliance of a Thai temple.
THAI will become the ninth operator of the A380 when it takes delivery of first the aircraft in the third quarter this year. The airline has firm orders for six A380s and will operate the aircraft on its premier routes from Bangkok to Europe.
