CAIRO – 10 May 2018: The Holding Company for Airports and Air Navigation of the Cairo International Airport received an emergency ladder designed specifically for Airbus 380, the largest aircraft in the world.

Engineer Mohammed Saeed Mahrous, chairman of the company, announced that Cairo International Airport had always been ready with the facilities necessary for such aircrafts to land safely on the runway, but the ladder for the specified airbus was missing, which disabled such aircrafts to land in Cairo International Airport.

Mahrous mentioned in his statements that the ladder costs €824,000 and that the company was able to receive it with all its parts. Cairo International Airport is now ready to welcome any Airbus 380 aircraft to land in its runways, according to Mahrous.
