Colombo, June 29 (newsin.asia) – For the first time in Sri Lanka’s aviation history, Emirates will launch its double-deck Airbus A380 aircraft on flights to Colombo commencing Aug 14, state media reported here Thursday.
An official from Ministry of Transport and Civil Aviation said the flight would fly to Colombo once a week and it would operate with a stopover destination in the Far East.
The Airbus A380 flies to Sri Lanka after the runway expansion project at the Bandaranaike International Airport concluded in April.
The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by European manufacturer Airbus.
It is the world’s largest passenger airliner and the airports at which it operates have upgraded facilities to accommodate it.
