Economy

Narita, Chiba Pref., May 18 (Jiji Press)--All Nippon Airways' second Airbus A380, painted to look like a giant, smiling sea turtle with a baby, arrived at Narita International Airport, east of Tokyo, on Saturday.

The 520-seat aircraft, the world's largest, was delivered from a plant of Airbus SAS in Toulouse, southern France.

It will be used for flights between Narita and Honolulu, Hawaii.

ANA is set to introduce three Airbus A380s on the route, all painted with designs of sea turtles, regarded as sacred in Hawaii.

The just delivered A380 features a smiling sea turtle with narrowed eyes and a tone of emerald green, designed to evoke a view of the ocean in Hawaii.
