Emirates Airlines has confirmed that it will expand its A380 operations in the coming months. This year the legendary double-decker will make a comeback to Glasgow on March 26, to Nice on June 1, and to Birmingham on July 1.
In addition, the airline has also announced that on May 1st, it will resume operating a second daily trip to London Stansted using its wide-body Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
By reinstating the second daily flight to Stansted, Emirates brings the total number of daily flights to 11, including six to London Heathrow and three to London Gatwick.
Emirates’ Airbus 380 Network
Emirates’ Airbus 380 network is consistently widening its international network and increasing its capacity in response to the rising demand for travel. Currently, Emirates flies its flagship A380 to 40 countries.
The airline plans to restore about 90% of its pre-pandemic A380 operations by the end of the summer, when the popular aircraft will be serving nearly 50 locations.
More than 80 Airbus A380s are in operation, making Emirates the largest operator of the super-jumbo. Flights on the A380 were initially offered by the airline in 2016 to Birmingham, then in 2017 to Nice, and in 2019 to Glasgow.
Refurbished Emirates A380 with Premium Economy Cabins
The refurbished Emirates A380 was completely rebuilt as part of the airline’s US$ 2 billion upgrade programme and was deployed earlier this month on the Dubai-London Heathrow service. The airline’s latest cabin decor includes lighter colours and textures in First and Business Class.
Additionally, by March 2024, the airline intends to expand its four-class A380 operations, including the introduction of Premium Economy cabins, to more than 35 destinations spread across 20 countries.
Customers adore the Emirates A380 because of its spacious and comfy cabins, relative quietness, and one-of-a-kind on-board features like the Onboard Lounge and First Class Shower Spa.
Customers may also take advantage of award-winning in-flight entertainment on ice, including over 5,000 channels of on-demand entertainment available on the largest displays in the industry, spread throughout all cabins.
