posted on Aug 23, 2016

RIOgaleão – Tom Jobim International Airport approved for A380 operations

On 22nd of August at 20:15 (TBC on the D day) the first A380 commercial flight landed at RIOgaleão – Tom Jobim International Airport. This Paris-Rio Air France flight was specifically scheduled on the occasion of the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics. This milestone was celebrated by the airport with a water salute on the arrival of the aircraft. The airport is joining the list of the 230 A380 compatible airports around the world.

RIOgaleão offers three A380 parking stands to allow future A380 scheduled operations. As a result of steady certification efforts in recent years, four airports in Latin America are now ready to welcome A380 commercial operations and support long-term air traffic growth in the region. Joining Tom Jobim International Airport are Benito Juarez Mexico City Airport, Sao Paulo-Guarulhos International Airport and Cancun International Airport. 

The A380 is the world’s largest, most spacious airliner that offers passengers the smoothest, quietest ride. Comfortably seating an average of 544 passengers on routes up to 8,200 nautical miles, the A380 has a unique ability to generate revenue, stimulate traffic and attract passengers. The A380 is the only aircraft which has two full decks. Over 130 million passengers have enjoyed the experience of flying on board an A380. Every three minutes, an A380 either takes off or lands around the world.
