Hundreds welcome Emirates A380 at Glasgow
Glasgow (Scotland), April 13, 2014
Hundreds of the plane spotters across Glasgow sought the city’s best vantage points to see the Emirates A380 touch down, which marked the airline’s tenth year of operations to the city.
The one-off A380 service signals the first time a Scottish airport has ever welcomed an A380, the world’s largest commercial aircraft, said a statement from Emirates.
Since beginning operations at Glasgow Airport on April 10, 2004, Emirates has carried 2.4 million passengers across its global network, which now covers 142 destinations.
Emirates currently offers over 43,000 passenger seats per month to and from Glasgow, following the upgrade of its second daily service to a Boeing 777 in 2012.-TradeArabia News Service
