Singapore Airlines preparing for A380 flight

The new Airbus A380 arrived at Singapore’s Changi Airport on Thursday for the airport to run trials such as safety, passenger disembarkation, catering etc.

The Jumbo will leave on Tuesday after enduring many trials.

The largest passenger airliner in the world has so far received 154 orders. SIA will be the first airline to fly the plane and already has 10 on order with the option of purchasing another 6.

October 2007 will be the maiden flight from Singapore to Sydney and preparations are already taking place.

The flight date has yet to be confirmed after Airbus gives the final delivery date in October.

All proceeds from the first flight ticket sales will be donated to charity.
