If you’re missing travel, this may inspire your wanderlust.
Emirates will take delivery of three more A380’s before November 2021.
The A380 is a passenger favourite because it has stunning interiors and a wider body. Often called a “hotel in the sky” the planes have enough room for a bar and shower suites.
However many airlines dropped the A380 before the pandemic in favour of smaller planes that can complete shorter routes. As a global connection hub, Dubai is well suited to the A380 and passengers will most likely be thrilled to see the plane still running.
Emirates is already flying the much-lauded planes in its London Heathrow and Paris Charles De Gaulle routes.
From October Emirates said it will use the A380 over a dozen popular routes from Dubai. These include Amman, Cairo, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Guangzhou, London Heathrow, Los Angeles, Manchester, Mauritius, Moscow, Munich, New York JFK, Paris, Toronto, Vienna, Washington DC, and Zurich.
All three new A380s to be delivered will be fitted out with Emirates’ private suites and Shower Spas in First Class and the popular Onboard Lounge.
In business class, guests will love the plush fully flat seats. Emirates A380 also has the industry’s largest seatback screens in all cabins.
The new planes will also have Emirates’ much-lauded Premium Economy cabin.
Ready for takeoff
Emirates now has the largest fleet of A380s. And the new delivery means the airline will be ready to pick up Australians by the time our borders open.
“Emirates will continue to be the largest operator of this spacious and modern aircraft for the next two decades,” Sir Tim Clark, Emirates Airline president said.
“We’re committed to ensuring that the Emirates A380 experience remains a customer favourite with ongoing investments to enhance our product and services.”
