Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation approves operations of Airbus A380 in India
Airbus welcomes the news that the Indian Ministry of Civil Aviation has approved the operations of the Airbus A380 in India. A booming economy, a growing middle class, migration, urbanisation and tourism are all factors pushing India to become one of the world’s fastest growing aviation markets. Larger aircraft like the A380 combined with higher load factors make the most efficient use of limited airport slots and contribute to rising passenger numbers without additional flights to capture this growth. As recently confirmed by London’s Heathrow Airport, Europe’s busiest A380 airport, the Airbus A380 lets airports maximise efficiency and revenue potential by offering more passenger seats with the same number of flights.
