Airbus A380 is a plane that needs special runway along with important necessary equipment for handling. Thus not all airports can handle the aircraft. In Pakistan, New Islamabad airport is the only airport that can handle the double-deck Airbus A380.

Starting from July Airbus A380 will have one daily flight between Dubai and Islamabad.

CAA Pakistan tweeted, “New International Airport will be the first to host aircraft in the country. Scheduled flight will be 3 hours between DXB-ISB starting July, 2018.”
