EMIRATES will launch a second daily service utilising the flagship superjumbo, the Airbus A380 come August 1.
The 519-seater aircraft will be placed on the EK424/425 service, and replaces the Boeing 777-300ER currently servicing these flights.
The airline’s executive vice-president and CCO, Thierry Antinori said,
Introducing our flagship A380 aircraft onto a second daily Perth service reaffirms our long standing commitment to Australia
It means more of our customers flying from or into Australia, can now enjoy their entire journey on Emirates’ award-winning A380 aircraft – not only to our Dubai hub, but also with great connections to popular Emirates A380 destinations such as London, Frankfurt and Copenhagen.
With more A380s on order, we look forward to continue utilising this highly popular aircraft to serve customer and capacity demand on key routes.
For travellers, this provides an increase of approximately 7,000 seats each week. Emirates current A380 service to Perth was launched in May last year.
