Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport said Monday that will install two
double-deck jet bridges this month for use by A380 aircraft, a double-deck jetliner manufactured by Airbus and currently the world’s largest passenger airliner.
The jetways are currently undergoing pre-installation testing and will be installed at the C2 and D6 gates of Terminal 2 later this month, the airport said.
The installation of the jetways follows the completion of an improvement project on the airport’s southern runway to meet the take-off and landing standards of A380 aircraft.
A number of air carriers, including China Southern Airlines, Singapore Airlines and Emirates, have indicated that they plan to fly A380 aircraft to Taiwan, according to the airport. [FULL STORY]
