Emirates superjumbo ready to touch down at Glasgow Airport
Glasgow Airport has spent more than £8m on upgrades to welcome the passenger aircraft.
The world's largest commercial passenger aircraft will begin regular services between Glasgow and Dubai on Tuesday.
Glasgow Airport has spent more than £8m upgrading its infrastructure to welcome the A380, including the introduction of Scotland's only triple airbridge.
The aircraft is expected to land at around 7.45pm and will take-off again at 9.30pm.
Those going along to watch the historic moment have been encouraged to use public transport if possible to reduce congestion in and around the airport.
The superjumbo visited Glasgow in 2014 to mark 10 years of flights from the city by the Emirates airline.
With a wing span of nearly 80 metres, the A380 can carry almost 500 passengers.
Airport managing director Mark Johnston has described the decision by Emirates to introduce the aircraft as a "huge milestone" for Glasgow Airport and a first for the Scottish aviation industry.
STV Weather presenter Sean Batty said those looking to catch the superjumbo in action from the airport's viewing area may have to contend with some rainfall.
He tweeted: "Could still be some showery rain with cloud base around 2000ft, so might not come into view until late in descent."
