Winch to work with Sparfell on VVIP A380

Design — 03.12.18 BY Jill Stockbridge

The biggest passenger jet in the world is getting a new lease of life, with the announcement by Winch Design that it will be designing an opulent interior for a VVIP A380. The design is part of a collaboration with Sparfell and Partners, the Geneva-based firm, that announced last May its intention to sell pre-owned Airbus superjumbos as head-of-state aircraft.

This game-changing double-decker A380 concept is sure to embrace the Winch signature design philosophy, centred on the importance of creating dynamic spaces that are balanced, beautiful and uplifting. This will be the biggest and most luxurious private jet in the world!

The announcement represents the beginning of a hopeful new phase for the iconic but slow-selling aircraft. With the earliest-production A380s expected to enter the secondhand market over the next few years, the market for ultraluxe executive jets may be a viable channel for these planes, which have not been as popular as Airbus would have hoped.
