This Wednesday, Airbus’ staff at the company’s manufacturing site proudly delivered the 50th Airbus A380 to Emirates Airline. On occasion of the jubilee, the jet’s pilot honoured Hamburg Airport not just with a single, but a double fly-over. The double-decker Airbus A380 is the world’s largest commercial aircraft.
Large and silent
Hamburg Airport is the official alternate airport for the A380, where the aircraft can land and be dispatched at any time. In addition, the A380 may also be operated in scheduled services at Hamburg Airport. “For years, Hamburg airport has been promoting the use of more modern and larger aircraft that offer better utilisation and less noise”, said Michael Eggenschwiler, CEO of Hamburg Airport.” For this reason, the airport particularly appreciates the visits of silent super jets.”
