World’s largest passenger aircraft to land in Beirut next month

Emirates Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger aircraft, will land in Beirut – Rafic Hariri International Airport on March 29. It is a first in the airport’s history! The Dubai-based airline

announced

that the flight is a one-off test service to check if the airport’s terminal and infrastructure can accommodate an A380 service. “The upcoming service next month will give travelers the chance to experience this revolutionary aircraft and the best service in the sky,” the airline stated in a

statement

.

The airport sector significantly contributes to Lebanon’s GDP. Investments in Lebanon’s aviation infrastructure, such as the facilitation for A380 operations, will improve the airport’s traffic. The Airbus A380 offers 429 economy seats, 76 flat-bed seats in business class, and 14 first class private suites. It also contains two shower spas and a lounge.
