The giant aircraft touched down at the Al Ain airport at 6pm on Monday to commence the week-long intensive compatibility testing and pilot training programme in order to ensure the fitness of the aircraft for commercial operation.
The Al Ain International Airport played host to the A380’s hot-weather checks twice during 2006.
Welcoming the Airbus A380, Al Ain International Airport Director Faris Al Mazrouei said the fact that Airbus had chosen the Al Ain airport as base for the A380 hot-weather compatibility tests was testimony to the global confidence in the professional services available at the airport.
Al Mazrouei said preparations had been made to ensure that the aircraft received the best support during its stay at the Al Ain airport.
Al Ain International Airport serves the Eastern Region of Abu Dhabi with an efficient cargo hub facility and is an ideal base for low-cost carriers. The location alone means the carriers who prefer to operate from a secondary airport can easily tap the entire UAE market.
Recently, the Emirates Corporation for Commercial Postal Services (Empost) moved in to take advantage of Al Ain airport’s strategic location.
