First delivery of A380 to Singapore Airlines set to take place next week.

The Airbus A380 was taking part in a test flight and landed in the capital of the Philippines on Thursday.

The aircraft flew from Melbourne to Manila International Airport and managed to land without any problems despite its size.

The flight was part of the many tests to show it could "fit in today's airport infrastructure," without having to adjust anything.

Airbus A380 is now the world's largest passenger jet and has the capacity to carry up to 850 people.

The first delivery to Singapore Airlines is set to take place next week.
