Airbus A380 to Make its First Landing In Africa
Thursday, November 09, 2006
Ethiopia will be the first to host Africa's maiden flight by the world's largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380, a testing flight that will build confidence in Africa's aviation industry. This first flight was sent for October of this year. So far, a series of super jumbo A380 successful test flights have been conducted in Singapore, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Hamburg, Madeline (Columbia) and Nunavut (Canada).
Ethiopian aviation authorities have expressed confidence that the newly constructed runway at Bole airport can safely carry the weight of the A380 passenger service.
Ethiopian Airlines, which is owned by the government, has ordered 10 Boeing 787 Dreamliner jets, whose delivery will commence in 2008.
