Airbus A380 to fly into India next year

New Delhi: The world's largest mechanical bird will cruise into the Indian skies next year. European aircraft maker Airbus plans to bring its superjumbo A380 into India on a trial run early next year. And the superjumbo is expected to touch down in the national capital Delhi as well as the financial capital Mumbai as part of its flight plan.
"We were earlier planning to fly the aircraft for the Bangalore Air Show in February next year. But that airfield is too small. So we now plan to get the aircraft to Mumbai and Delhi early next year," Airbus' COO (customers) John Leahy said. "The A380 will definitely be here in the next couple of months," he added.
The new owners of both Delhi and Mumbai airports are already working towards readying the airports and making them capable of handling an A380 landing and take-off.
