    The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner which is the world's largest passenger airliner.

    The airports at which the aircraft operates need to have upgraded facilities to accommodate it.

    It will be interesting to post the details of the construction along with the approach since A380 is a massive beast and requires the corresponding roam to maneuver.

    Islamabad Airport Authority have done themselves proud by making this possible.

    Good going !!

    The new airport will have 15 air-conditioned jetways or passenger boarding bridges, 13 remote bays for larger aircraft and 7 remote bays for ATR and other smaller planes, in addition to four cargo bays. Of the 15 jetways – two have been specified for the wide-body aircraft A380.

    The passenger handling of the A380 also will be a great challenge and a worthy challenge for the ground staff.
    Most flights in and out of Pakistan are booked to the brim and is truly an emerging market for the aviation industry.
