Dubai Airport tops list for A380 flights: report

Dubai International Airport has been named as the world's leading hub in terms of A380 flights by airports business intelligence news provider the Moodie Report.com

According to the report, Dubai handled 7,259 A380 flights to 28 destinations in 2012. The vast majority of these flights were operated by Emirates, the world´s biggest operator of the super-jumbo aircraft.

Singapore Changi was second, with 6,653 A380 flights, and London Heathrow was third with 3,697. Frankfurt, Sydney, Paris, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, New York and Melbourne were also in the top 10.

Dubai was also recently named as the world´s second busiest airport in terms of international passenger traffic.

Cavotec´s innovative ground support equipment supplies A380 aircraft at Dubai´s dedicated Emirates Concourse A with essential services such as cool air and electrical power.

As previously announced, we are also currently supplying our ground support equipment for the new Emirates A380 Engineering Centre at the airport. For this project, we are installing pop-up pit systems and pre-conditioned air units for four new A380 maintenance hangars.

Cavotec´s aviation systems enable airports to reduce the use of diesel-driven equipment, increasing operational efficiency and resulting in cleaner air and less cluttered tarmac around aircraft.
