The Government has removed the restriction on scheduled operation by foreign airlines of the world's largest civilian aircraft, the Airbus A-380, in India.

An official statement from the Ministry of Civil Aviation states that flights of A-380 to India will be allowed in 4 airports — Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bangalore, which have the required infrastructure for A-380 operations.

The decision has been taken after consultations with the DGCA, Air India and the Airports Authority of India.

Singapore Airline, Emirates and Lufthansa are interested in operating A-380 aircraft in India on various international routes.
