NEW DELHI: An Emirates Airbus A380 flew in from Dubai with over 500 passengers, marking the world’s largest commercial aircraft’s arrival at the Terminal-3 (T3) of Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) Thursday.

The Emirates EK516 landed around 3:00 pm in heavy downpour around the airport.

The Airbus A380 flight was part of a drill to reaffirm the operational readiness of the the world’s sixth largest passenger terminal.

T3 has a capacity to handle 34 million passengers per annum and will be fully operational from July 28 after the synchronisation process among various airport agencies is complete.
