The UK’s Manchester Airport will become the first regional airport in the world to accommodate the A380 superjumbo aircraft from 1 September 2010.

Emirates airlines will fly the A380 between Dubai and Manchester on a daily basis.

The airport has invested nearly £10m ($15m) to upgrade its airfield and terminal in order to accommodate the aircraft.

The A380 will replace the existing Boeing 777 on flight EK018 and will depart from Manchester daily at 13.30 to Dubai and onward destinations.

The A380 is the world’s only twin-deck aircraft and one of the most environmentally advanced airliners in the sky today.
