Emirates expands Airbus A380 network with three new destinations

Emirates is launching three A380 destinations, bringing its flagship three-class double-decker aircraft from Dubai to Tokyo- Narita, Casablanca and Sao Paulo.

With this triple deployment, Emirates will be the first airline to operate scheduled A380 services in Latin America as well as to North Africa.

In addition, the Emirates A380 service to Sao Paulo marks the airline’s tenth year of operations in Brazil, which began with daily flights between Dubai and Sao Paulo in October 2007.

Emirates had previously served Narita with an A380.

The reintroduction of this service and increase in capacity is in response to the healthy demand for travel between Japan and Dubai.

Travellers and fans of the highly popular Emirates A380 will now have more opportunities to enjoy this iconic aircraft as Emirates now flies the A380 to 49 destinations on six continents.

On all three routes, the A380 replaces an existing Boeing 777 service.

Emirates’ spacious A380 aircraft can transport up to 515 passengers per flight, and eight tonnes of cargo.

Emirates’ premium on-board experience is complemented by on-the-ground comfort with a network of 40 dedicated Emirates Lounges located within major airports around the globe - all designed with the same attention to detail and exceptional service.

Emirates is the world’s largest operator of A380s, with 94 currently in its fleet and a further 48 on order.

Since 2008, the airline has carried over 65 million passengers on its flagship aircraft.
