Thai Airways International’s first Airbus A380 has rolled out of the Airbus paintshop in Hamburg.

Airbus says that the rollout marks completion of the painting and cabin installation work, with the aircraft to now enter a ground testing phase. Once that phase is completed, the aircraft will ferry to Toulouse to be prepared for its delivery in the third quarter of the year.

Thai has six A380s on order and will become the ninth A380 operator once it takes delivery of the aircraft. The airline will use its A380s on some of its European services.
