Birmingham Due an A380

by Matt Falcus

Much talk is currently spreading about Emirates sending an Airbus A380 to Birmingham on 9th September as a one-off to celebrate the airport’s 75th anniversary and the opening of the new revised International Pier.

Whilst this information comes on good authority, and it seems there is a good chance it’ll happen, people are also saying they’re poised to switch it back to the usual Boeing 777-300 at last minute. There’s also the fact that the new international pier is well behind schedule and not likely to open until December.

Any updates would be appreciated if you are ‘in the know’

A380 to Birmingham has been confirmed on EK39/40 for 9th September by Emirates on their website. Seats on sale in all sections including First Class. Aircraft will be taken from LHR service EK1/2 on that day. EK1/2 will be operated by a 3 class 777-300. No payload restrictions on EK39/40 so will not revert to a 777-300 at short notice.

I`ve also had good information about the A380 into BHX and the GDS booking system at works confirms this.

Yes another A380 due next Saturday 5th Sept around 15.40 hr (3.40 pm )

The manufacturer is sending the prototype c/n 001 reg F-WWOW on an aerial tour of Britain and on the return leg from Scotland will hopefully make a flypast and go-round
at Birmingham International Airport before returning to the factory in France.
