The wait to fly on the world's biggest aircraft, Airbus 380 from India is over for citizens, as Indian government has removed restrictions on flights of Airbus A-380.

As of now, only four airports in the country, which includes Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore will be able to handle Airbus double-decker jumbo's as these airports have the required infrastructure for such operations.

The decision was taken by Indian Civil Aviation Ministry, Airports Authority of India (AAI) and Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), Indian Aviation Ministry said in a statement on Jan. 27, 2014.

While announcing the decision to allow Airbus 380 operations, Indian aviation Minister, Ajit Singh said this will boost Indian civil aviation in the international market, thereby providing more comfortable and luxurious travel to passengers as well as generating additional revenue to airports.

The minster also said that airliner such as Lufthansa Airlines, Singapore Airlines and Emirates Airlines have evinced interest in starting A380 services from India to various international routes.

India was hopeful to get it own A380s by 2016, which was ordered by the lone Indian carrier, Kingfisher Airlines, which had ordered five A380s on June 15, 2005.

In May 2007, Kingfisher Airlines as part of the second anniversary campaign managed to touch down A380s in Mumbai and New Delhi airports.

But now, the airliner has gone defunct and the company has also cancelled the order.

In January 2014, Mumbai got its new $2 billion state-of-the-art terminal building (T2) that will increase the airport capacity from 30 million to 40 million passengers annually that is capable of handling such a huge aircraft.

"T2 terminal will be opening for operations later this month and will be capable of handing any type of aircrafts," Charu Deshmukh, Chief Planner of Mumbai Internternational Airport Limited told Jagdish Kumar.

Airbus company, manufacturer of superjumbo while welcoming the announcement of the Indian Aviation ministry on Jan. 27, 2014 said, "Larger aircraft like the A380 combined with higher load factors make the most efficient use of limited airport slots and contribute to rising passenger numbers without additional flights to capture one of the world's fastest growing aviation markets."

Dr. Kiran Rao, Executive Vice President, Strategy and Marketing of Airbus said in a statement, "This is good news for Indian airports and the Indian flying public."

As per Airbus, the company has so far delivered 120 A380s of 304 aircraft orders it has received by 2013.

A380 are wide bodied, double decked, four engine aircrafts that can accommodate 853 passengers in all economy class or 525 passengers in three class type sitting arrangement.

So far, the aircraft has visited nearly 160 airports of all sizes across the world.
