Literature survey, Report 2006.TL.7051, Transport Engineering and Logistics.

In 2007 the cargo version of the Airbus A380 will be introduced. The main research questions for this study are which role the Airbus A380-800F could get in the air cargo traffic and which consequences will the A380-800Fs introduction have on the already existing facilities of airports.

To answer these questions, the following subjects will get attention and will be discussed in this report: The costs to make these modifications at airports are the biggest disadvantage of the A380s introduction.
