Airbus to offer higher-weight A380 from 2013

Airbus is to lift the A380’s maximum take-off weight to 575t, a six tonne hike on the current heaviest variant and two tonnes higher than an earlier increased-weight proposal.

It will stretch the range by some 150nm, said Airbus, taking its capability to around 15,500km (8,350nm) at current payloads.

The higher-weight version would be offered for introduction to service early in 2013.
