Very true. Runways had to be widened and lengthened, as well as passenger and baggage handling facilities.

16. The four-engined A380 uses two suppliers for engines - Trent 900s made by Rolls-Royce and GP7000s from Engine Alliance, a joint venture between GE and Pratt & Whitney. Both manufacturers developed their existing gas turbine technology to create engines for the A380. Designers had to produce an engine which could produce enough air to get such a massive aircraft off the ground, meet demanding noise limits yet still have a frugal fuel consumption to maximise range and cut costs while satisfying environmentalists.
