Airbus A380 given permission to land!

The eagerly awaited Airbus A380 has been given authorisation to land on 45-meter wide runways by The European Aviation Safety Agency and the Federal Aviation Administration.

"The A380 has already landed on 45 airports across the world and is scheduled to land on 70 more airports by 2011.”

The A380 will be the world’s largest long-range aircraft and has been shown to be safely controllable possessing the navigation equipment to enable safe runways 45 meters wide or wider.

The current required width of runways stands at 45 or more.
