Airbus Video News Release : A380 generates revenue for airports

The question begging to be asked is why Cape Town International, Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International, Ethiopia’s Bole International and Lagos’s MMIA are not yet able to accommodate an A380.  All of them are experiencing additional demand for air travel as a result of one or more of the following major factors:
  • rapid urbanisation 
  • population growth
  • a growing middle class with the desire and means to travel
  • favourable foreign exchange rates promoting in-bound tourism
  • opportunities to develop tourism as a major employment and national revenue driver
  • a need to stimulate trade (imports and exports of people, goods and services)

Bigger aircraft like the A380 are helping the world's busiest airports like Hong Kong and Heathrow increase revenue, free up slots at their gates, reduce landing fees for airlines and cut ticket prices for passengers.
