Dubai : Emirates has announced it will scale up its A380 operations with the iconic double-decker returning to Glasgow (March 26, 2023), Nice (June 1, 2023) and Birmingham (July 1, 2023).
Emirates currently deploys its flagship A380 to 40 destinations worldwide. By the end of this summer, the popular aircraft will be serving almost 50 destinations, restoring close to 90 per cent of the airline's pre-pandemic A380 network.
Emirates is the largest operator of Airbus A380, with more than 80 aircraft currently in active service. The airline first launched A380 operations to Birmingham in 2016; Nice in 2017; and Glasgow in 2019.
The first Emirates A380 to be completely refurbished under the airline's USD 2 billion retrofit programme was deployed earlier in January on the Dubai-London Heathrow service featuring the Premium Economy cabin, and Emirates' latest cabin interiors.
The airline also plans to ramp up its four-class A380 operations featuring Premium Economy cabins to more than 35 destinations across 20 countries by March 2024.
The Emirates A380 has spacious and comfortable cabins, quietness, and unique on-board features such as the Onboard Lounge and First Class Shower Spa.
Emirates now operates 21 flights to and from Dhaka and via Dubai connects to over 130 destinations across the globe.
