AIRBUS A380 BEGINS TO FLY TO BRAZIL IN NOVEMBER Largest aircraft in the world passenger will operate at Guarulhos Airport with Emirates company from November 15; version coming to São Paulo can carry 489 passengers
It took but finally the Airbus A380, the largest aircraft in aviation history passengers, will operate commercially in Brazil. As Airway found, Emirates Airline company will begin operations with "Super Jumbo" in the country from next month at the International Airport of Guarulhos (SP). The first flight, bound for Dubai, is scheduled for November 15.
Contact entry, the airline of the UAE confirmed that there will be a flight 'in a weekend of November', but did not provide further details. Since the concessionaire responsible for Guarulhos Airport (GRU Airport) also recognized piece of information: the Emirati company has filed a change "hotran" document that regulates all air operations in Brazil, but is still awaiting authorization from ANAC . Consulted, the National Civil Aviation Agency said the new plane will have the authorization issued on the 18th.
Capacity above normal
The suspicion about the official A380 coming appeared on social media that cited one hotran to change the airline's capacity on the route between Guarulhos and Dubai. The document, however, contains conflicting data showing that a Boeing 777-200 777-300 offering 489 replace the seats 354 against the larger model. This is actually the configuration of the versions of the company's A380.
The GRU administration says the track and the terminal of the airport's passengers are already in line to receive the A380 safely and efficiently, while still await the opinion of the ANAC. To receive the giant Airbus, it was necessary to extend the shoulders of the landing and takeoff and rolling (taxiway), the brigade staff was expanded and contingency plans have been improved, among others.
To receive the largest aircraft Airbus and all its passengers, the new terminal GRU T3 has loading and unloading gates with special bridges (fingers) capable of operating with large aircraft and two floors - the other device of this type is the Boeing 747-800, has already operated in Brazil by Lufthansa. In all, the international airport of São Paulo may get five A380 simultaneously.
I looks to me that it is just (for now) a off-on event, isn't it?..
Don't know though if they would have enough frames to do a daily rotation (would need 2 frames?..), it seems to me that all forthcoming frames are fully booked with new/farther destinations until MSN206 included....(=>deliverable by 2016-Q1.....)..
But still a good news, would mean that GRU is now A380-ready!
