Travelers looking to fly long-haul on the Airbus superjumbo can now book tickets directly via a new dedicated online search platform developed by the aircraft's maker.

A survey of passengers arriving at London Heathrow Airport quoted by Airbus reveals that 60 per cent of passengers are willing to put their hand in their pocket to fly on the A380. Some, it seems, are ready to go the extra mile to travel long-haul onboard one of the airliner's two passenger decks.

Today more than ever, aircraft type is an important factor for travelers booking flights. However, passengers aren't able to search specifically for tickets on their favorite planes when booking online. Now, thanks to a new travel search engine called iflya380.com, travelers looking specifically to fly on the Airbus A380 can do just that.

The site takes the form of a regular travel search engine for booking flights, but here, only flights operated by A380 aircraft are listed in the results. Thirteen airlines currently operate the Airbus superjumbo, which offers passengers more spacious traveling conditions and a quieter cabin: Emirates Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Lufthansa, British Airways, Qantas, Air France, Korean Air, Etihad Airways, Malaysia Airlines, Qatar Airways, Thai Airways, China Southern Airlines and Asiana Airlines.

The site, launched by Airbus, lets users view and compare the range of onboard services from each carrier. Users search for flights by entering details such as departure and destination airports, dates of travel and preferred class. However, passengers are redirected to the airline's own page for the final stages of booking.
