Airbus A380 Announcement
The Airbus A380 is scheduled to land at O’Hare International Airport on March 20 as part of a demonstration flight that is authorized by the Federal Aviation Administration to meet technical route-proving requirements.
The aircraft is expected to land and be staged on a remote part of O’Hare’s airfield, away from public view and not visible from surrounding airport roadways. There will be no public tours of the aircraft.
We ask that aviation enthusiasts not arrive at or near O’Hare Airport on March 20 with the expectation that they will be able to watch the Airbus A380 land or view from any airport runway or taxiway.
We are providing limited access to select members of the news media so that they may film and share footage of the event with the general public via print and television news outlets.
