The largest passenger aircraft in the world, the Airbus A380,has landed at the Heydar Aliyev International Airport. According to, the charter flight of the Hi Fly airline brought the UEFA delegation to the Europa League final, which will held at the Baku Olympic Stadium on Wednesday, May 29.

It should be noted, the Airbus A380 is the most capacious passenger aircraft in the world. This is a two-storied aircraft that can accommodate 544 passengers and cover a distance of 15 thousand kilometers without refueling. The liner’s exploitation has begun in 2007.

The uniqueness of landing such a large aircraft is not only that this is the first time in Baku, but also that not every airport in the world, in principle, can receive such a large aircraft. The airport must have a long and strong landing strip.
