  • World's Biggest Passenger Plane Lands in London

    Published: Friday, May 19, 2006
    The world's biggest passenger airliner landed at Europe's busiest airport Thursday to test whether London's Heathrow is ready for the Airbus A380.

    En route from the Berlin Air Show - where Airbus was showcasing the double-decker this week - the plane flew over the Airbus plant in north Wales, where the carrier's huge wings are made.

    "It is clearly quite a momentous day in U.K. aviation history," BAA Heathrow managing director Tony Douglas said before the aircraft's arrival.

    The A380 will stay at Heathrow for airport-compatibility tests before returning to Berlin early Friday.

    Heathrow operator BAA is spending some $850 million to upgrade the airport to accommodate the A380 and other anticipated ultra-large aircraft of the future. Other work has included runway resurfacing, upgrading runway lighting and the construction of new taxiways.

  • Giant A380 Set To Test Out Heathrow

    All being well, Thursday sees an Airbus A380 land at London airport for the first time to prove Heathrow's congested runways and terminals can take it. London-Singapore-Sydney will be the initial route for launch customer Singapore Airlines, once the first of 10 double-decker super jumbos are delivered later this year.

    So far, 159 have been ordered, with bulk discounts on the list price of US$295 million each. Emirates, Qantas, Malaysian and China Southern are among the customers.
