Edinburgh Airport will be visited by the world’s largest commercial airliner this weekend.
On Saturday September 5th 2009, a 525-seater Airbus A380 will make an approach-and-go manoeuvre at the travel hub.
The event is notable because it will be the A380’s first appearance in Scotland.
It will not land at the airport but passengers are sure to see it come in to the runway before it speeds off again.
Known as the "Superjumbo", the first commercial use version of the plane was launched two years ago for a flight between Singapore and Sydney.
Passengers who use Edinburgh Airport may also be interested in construction plans that aim to improve facilities for getting to the travel hub using public transport.
The plans, which are currently part of a public consultation before being submitted to Edinburgh city council for permission, would create a multi-million pound train and tram interchange.
A new tram stop on the Edinburgh network will also be created to improve access for people on their way to the airport.
