The largest passenger aircraft in the world, the Airbus A380, is scheduled to land for the first time at Bengaluru’s Kempegowda International Airport (KIA). Today, October 14, 2022, the Emirates Airlines aircraft is scheduled to touch down in India.
As the Emirates Airlines plane was originally scheduled to land in India two weeks after takeoff, the inaugural flight of the aircraft has been postponed. On October 30, the plane was supposed to touch down on Indian soil. It should be noted that the double-decker plane, which belongs to the airline based in Garhoud, will arrive in Bengaluru from Dubai. The Bengaluru Airport authorities have also begun making arrangements to manage the plane’s landing.
The announcement that the Bengaluru Airport management were getting ready to receive the plane was made via their official Twitter with the caption, “On October 14, the Emirates Airbus A380 will touch down at #BLRAirport. To prepare for this historic first flight to #BLR, our teams are getting ready. Infrastructure and procedures are being tested by our engineers and operations team. We are anxiously anticipating the big day. The smooth landing of Emirates.” The tweet also included a picture of the largest passenger aircraft in the world.

According to sources from the Deccan Herald, Emirates EK562 aircraft, which is being operated by an Airbus A380, would depart from Dubai at 10 am and touch down in Bengaluru at about 3:40 pm. The aircraft will then fly for the first time from the airport on a return voyage from Bengaluru to Dubai.
Being the largest aeroplane in the world, the plane’s landing at Kempegowda International Airport is remarkable. The Airbus A380 measures 72.7 metres in length, 510 to 575 tonnes in weight, and 24.1 metres in height. The A380 is currently in use by a number of airlines, with Emirates being the largest, despite Airbus having given their last one to Emirates and ceasing production of the aircraft. The gigantic A380 boasts larger screens in every class, more legroom, and seating with 45% more space than the Boeing 777.
