First time that El Prat receives two A380s simultaneously

For the first time in its history, Barcelona airport has received two Airbus A380s simultaneously. The planes, one from Emirates and the other from Asiana, landed in El Prat from Dubai and Seoul, respectively, with a total of 1,102 passengers on board, reveals La Vanguardia (The largest plane in the world returns to Barcelona this Monday).

Asiana normally operates this route with an A350, although this Saturday it changed it to the A380 due to the increase in demand as a result of the Mobile World Congress. It transported 495 travelers, 12 in first class, 66 in business and the remaining 417 in economy class.

Emirates, for its part, has a weekly flight to El Prat with one of its A380s (the other is operated with a Boeing 777-300). In their case, these planes have a total of 517 seats, 14 in first class, 76 in business and the remaining 427 in tourist.

As can be seen in the images shared by Aeroinfo Barcelona-El Prat (@AeroinfoBCN), the two A380s were parked side by side on the new south dock of T1 of the airport.
