Emirates to fly A380s to two new destinations

DUBAI, January 28, 2015

Dubai-based Emirates plans to launch its A380 services to two European destinations: Dusseldorf (Germany) and Madrid (Spain).

For both cities, Emirates will be the first airline to operate a scheduled A380 service. The Dusseldorf route will be launched on July 1 and the Madrid route on August 1.

The addition of the two new routes to the list brings the total number of European gateways served by Emirates A380 to 13.

Moreover, Emirates currently has 57 A380s in its fleet, flying to 34 destinations globally.

“As the world’s largest operator of the A380, Emirates is proud to further expand the number of destinations served by this incredible aircraft. It offers passengers in all three classes a superior travel experience thanks to unique features like: the world’s only Shower Spas in First Class, the Onboard Lounge where First Class and Business Class passengers can socialise at 40,000 feet, our award-winning in-flight entertainment system with more than 2,000 ‘on demand’ channels, and free Wi-Fi,” said Hubert Frach, Emirates divisional senior vice president Commercial Operations - West.

“By introducing new A380 services out of Dusseldorf and Madrid, our customers can enjoy seamless connectivity on the most talked about aircraft, to popular destinations in Asia, Africa, Indian Ocean, Australia and the Middle East, via our Dubai hub,” he said.

The Emirates A380 offers a total of 519 seats in a three-class configuration, with 429 spacious seats in Economy Class on the main deck, 76 fully flat-bed mini-pods in Business Class and 14 First Class Private Suites on the upper deck.

As with all Emirates flights, passengers will enjoy the extra generous Emirates baggage allowance of 30 kg in Economy Class, 40 kg in Business Class and 50 kg in First Class. – TradeArabia News Service
