I think the Qatar its ready for delivery feb. 2014
So the new airport will open then? They wont take delivery until the new airport is ready. That would be cool if the first commercial flight is an A380 flown by Qatar.

It's unclear when the new airport will actually open, after the literally last minute postponement of the opening in April no new date has been announced. But Q4 2013 does seem the most likely schedule right now. When Qatar in July 2012 delayed the delivery until 2014 because of the A380 wing issues there was no indication that the opening of the new airport would also be delayed.

I also don't believe that they will postpone the delivery of the A380 in the case the new airport won't be ready. Do they have enough credit with Airbus that they can delay it even further without a valid A380 related reason? They can stretch it for some time, but not more then a couple of months. Unless they strike a deal so that Airbus can just send them an invoice for the parking fees.

I would like to ask some question relating to A380. It's not about the airplane, but about the airport.

What is the specification of the airports that can accommodate A380? How the airport gate and immigration desk must be designed to accommodate the A380?

Well the problem with Doha's current airport is that it cant accommodate the A380 at all. The terminal and parking area at that airport is really tight from looking at pictures. Airports overall have to have a runway system that can handle the landing and takeoff of an A380 with out messing up the concrete. The gates have to have three air bridges and immigration has to be able to handle 450-500 or more passengers getting off at once and passengers being able to connect or continue to leaving the airport with out having a major backup at immigration. Overall the airport and the community has to have the demand to be able to make a profit off an A380 flight.

The reason why I'm asking this is because the Kualanamu airport in North Sumatera, Indonesia, is often claimed as the first airport in Indonesia that could truly accomodate A380.

Despite the fact that the airport have a rather small gate, and each gate is equipped with just one air bridge.

Do you think the gates of this airport can handle A380?





More about the airport.

Having 3 aerobridges isn't necessary, however it's recommended to speed up the disembarking and boarding process.

Looking at the image you provided, 4th bay from the left is the A380 gate considering the spacing.

In Jeddah, they have no aerobridge for A380 at all! But they do compensate that with airstairs for all doors (on the left side). And their gates and immigration desks are already designed for massive influx of passengers normally seen during Hajj period.

I was told that each bay at Kualanamu can accommodate the A380. But I'm doubtful about the gate capacity, or immigration desks capacity.

Unless if some passengers are debarked through airstairs...which could be considered as blasphemy.

The airport in Kualanamu could be able to handle an medical emergency if one arose on a flight flown by an A380. Does the airport even have the market to do an A380 flight? Or they are hoping Emirates will eventually fly on of theirs once they are done finding others cities for the 90 A380s.

The Medan forum members should learn the bold statement.

If its just a medical emergency landing (like what Singapore Airlines did in Jakarta a few months ago) then the average Indonesian airport that could accommodate Boeing 747 could definitely handle Airbus A380.

But what about regular Airbus A380 flight? It will definitely require larger infrastructure than those who would normally accommodate Boeing 747.

Talking about infrastructure, I've just realize that a fully loaded Boeing 777-300ER would require the same runway thickness as Airbus A380. This is the reason why Garuda postponing their direct Jakarta-London flight all the way until May 2014! Pending the runway readiness.

Apparently when Garuda management announcing the flight, they were in the same state of mind as those who believing that Kualanamu can accomodate A380.

If Emirates wants to fly in their A380 to Indonesia, the logical choice would be Jakarta, Bali, or Surabaya.

Only A380 going to Jeddah is Emirates so I cant imagine they will build a new facility just for one A380.

But it must be one chaotic boarding and getting off the plane.

Jeddah is a special case since it's probably 90% of it's traffic are pilgrims for Mecca. It doesn't matter for Emirates as premium airliner that the service isn't up to standard like at their other A380 destinations.

The new terminal at Jeddah that will open next year will be A380 ready though. It's not like the airport doesn't see many large planes all through the year, it sees a lot of high density 747s and not just during the Hajj.

My friends who flew with Emirates A380 to Jeddah didn't go for Hajj pilgrimage. He went for Umrah pilgrimage (a similar pilgrimage as Hajj, albeit on lower scale, and can be done at all year round except during Hajj pilgrimage).
