Updated A380 Tour

Mon Oct 17, 2005 9:01 am

The world's newest and largest airliner, the Airbus A380, is to visit Frankfurt in Germany for airport compatibility verification tests at the end of this month and will fly to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in the first half of November.

It will then be on display at the Dubai airshow in the second half of November.

The visits, which mark the first time that the Airbus A380 will be seen outside Europe, will give customers a chance to see the aircraft at first hand and airports an early opportunity to check their preparedness to handle it in commercial service.

The tests at Frankfurt will include taxiing around the airport, docking at a terminal, and checking passenger boarding bridge positioning. They will also demonstrate ease of access for servicing vehicles such as catering trucks, cargo loaders, fuel bowsers and water servicing -- both individually and together as they would be positioned during an aircraft turnaround.
