Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger jet, will be at the 7th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition for three days.
The exhibition takes place in the southern Chinese city of Zhuhai, Guangdong Province starting November 4.
It will be the airplane’s second trip to China; it is coming from France. The A380 carried 2,000 tents this May for people left homeless by the 8.0-magnitude earthquake in Sichuan.
The super-jumbo jet, which is scheduled to arrive in Zhuhai on Nov. 3, will be on static display and will also perform flying demonstrations. Some visitors will be invited aboard.
The double-deck jetliner, developed by French aircraft manufacturer Airbus, can seat 525 passengers. It boasts energy efficiency as less than three liters of fuel consumed to sustain 100 kilometers of flight per passenger.
Five of the planes will be delivered to China Southern Airlines in early 2009.
