Emirates Airbus A380 : the super double decker plane from Dubai in Birmingham and the Midlands

Emirates started flying there infamous Airbus A380 plane from Dubai to Birmingham Airport from Spring 2016. They now have 2 daily services between the West Midlands and UAE. The plane is quite a sight to see. Double decker with big wings and 4 jets. I always look out for it in the sky or at BHX. You can also see it from the local bus or train routes. I once saw it from Kenilworth.

Emirates Airbus A380 : the super double decker plane from Dubai in Birmingham and the Midlands





Emirates started flying there infamous Airbus A380 plane from Dubai to Birmingham Airport from Spring 2016. They now have 2 daily services between the West Midlands and UAE. The plane is quite a sight to see. Double decker with big wings and 4 jets. I always look out for it in the sky or at BHX. You can also see it from the local bus or train routes. I once saw it from Kenilworth. 


Over the Easter weekend of March 2016, a crowd of people headed to the Sheldon Country Park to see the Emirates Airbus A380 land at the park for the first time. It took me 3 buses to get to the Marston Green Station Interchange, and I just about saw it coming into land at runway 15. Was quite the sight to see having a giant plane coming overhead!

After this, the airport did the traditional fire hose welcome that they do to new airlines or new routes. I was hoping to get more shots at this time from it landing, but I arrived at the park at bit late. So after it landed, I zoomed in through the fence towards where the plane was getting hosed!

After the hosing had stopped a better view of the plane. A distant church spire seen behind. That's St Peter's Church, Bickenhill.

A good view of the Emirates Airbus A380 at Birmingham Airport is from the window of the X1 National Express West Midlands Platinum bus. The bus lane curves around the runway extension, and gives you good views of the airport. This was during December 2017.

A closer up look, more detailed view from the bus during December 2017. There is a double decker ramp to access both levels of the plane.

Another ride of the X1 NXWM Platinum bus, this time during March 2018. At this time, you could see the lifting equipment to get luggage on or off the double decker plane! Compare it to the tiny plane at the bottom of the picture!

A more detailed view of A380 during March 2018.

Landing back at Birmingham Airport with Jet2 during early July 2018 (from Pisa, Italy), as we came in to the terminal, saw the Emirates Airbus A380! One is at the airport during midday, and one in the late evening, like this one.

On a sunny November 2018 day, once again got another shot of the Emirates Airbus A380 from the X1 NXWM Platinum bus. This time heading back towards the Coventry Road. To the left was a Jet2.com plane, similar to the ones I had been on during June / July 2018 (for the Tuscany holiday). Usually from that far out (with Jet2 or other airlines), you have to get on a bus to take you back to the terminal building (for passport control and baggage claim).

I visited the newly opened Kenilworth Station during early May 2018, and when I went back to catch my train back to Leamington Spa, I saw the Emirates Airbus A380!

I saw it turn around as it headed to runway 33 at Birmingham Airport. It is so massive! Imagine being at Kenilworth Castle and seeing this above?

Continuing to turn around on it's approach to Birmingham Airport during May 2019. What a beast!

Wheels out, not long before it landed at Birmingham Airport. Passengers would have seen the A45 semi circle re-route due to the runway extension of several years ago.

This March 2019 view from a London Northwestern Railway Class 350 train I caught at Coventry heading to Birmingham New Street. There is a view of Birmingham Airport from the West Coast Mainline. At this time you could see the Emirates Airbus A380 with a Lufthansa Airbus A320. Several buses nearby, which are used to take passengers from the plane to the terminal, when the ramp isn't attached, or it's too far from the plane to the terminal building.

The Construction of Three Arena Central (HMRC) - June 2019

Construction continues at a pace with the steel structure complete and the hexagon sub-cladding and windows installed to nearly half way up. Dull weather for this update but some nice angles and perspectives from around the site.
