Airbus to inspect all A380 superjumbos for wing cracks

9 February 2012

Aircraft maker Airbus has been ordered to check all A380 superjumbo planes currently in service after cracks were found in wing components.

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has ordered all 68 Airbus A380 superjumbo planes currently in operation to be checked.

The superjumbo’s maker said it had already started implementing a temporary fix  to the problem and a permanent fix would be rolled out shortly.

The move came as Qantas Airways, Australia’s largest carrier, suspended the use of one of its Airbus A380 passenger jets after discovering 36 small cracks in key wing components.
