BANGALORE: Infosys Technologies Ltd has played a major role in the design and development of A380, the world's largest passenger aircraft produced by Airbus, the software major has said. In a statement, Infosys said its contribution was in the design and development of the jumbo aircraft's structural components, using its unique global delivery model. "We worked on the design and development of the top and bottom skin extensions within the inner fixed trailing edge for the A380.
