A380 set to cause traffic congestion

Traffic congestion is set to increase with the introduction of the Airbus A380. The four engines produce a wake vortex when taking off and landing which could prove dangerous to other aircraft.

An extra two minutes will have to be adhered to by large aircraft and three minutes for smaller ones when the Airbus takes off, on the other hand when the A380 lands there will be a wait of four and three minutes.

The A380 will primarily be used for long haul flights, which normally come at peak times thus resulting in possible delays.
