Emirates advances A380 service to Munich
Dubai, October 11, 2011
Emirates Airlines is bringing forward its first daily A380 service to Germany by serving Munich from November 25, nearly five weeks earlier than expected.
The double decker was originally set to replace EK 49, one of two daily services to Munich, from January 1, 2012.
“Emirates is the first foreign carrier to bring the A380 back to Germany,” said Salem Obaidalla, the airline’s senior vice president, Commercial Operations, Europe & Russian Federation.
“After further reviewing our forthcoming A380 deliveries and expected demand, we have decided to bring forward its deployment to Munich by more than a month, which is excellent news for one of our most important markets.”
EK 49 departs Dubai at 0910 hrs and gets into Munich at 1245 hrs. – TradeArabia News Service
