Emirates has unveiled plans to increase capacity on the Dubai-Milan route with the deployment of a second daily A380.
The migration from a Boeing 777-300ER to the double decker represents a capacity increase of 1,834 seats per week between the two cities; enabling more A380 to A380 connections to and from key destinations in Australia, China, South Korea and south-east Asia with just one stop in Dubai.
Commencing October 1st, Emirates flights EK91/92 will be operated by an Airbus A380 aircraft in a three-class configuration.
Emirates’ flight EK91 departs from Dubai International Airport at 15:45 and arrives in Milan at 20:30.
The outbound flight EK92 departs from Milan at 22:20 and arrives in Dubai at 0625 the following day.
The airline currently operates three daily services between Dubai and Milan, as well as a daily flight from Milan to New York JFK.
From the airport, Emirates also enables seamless rail connections to over 700 train stations across Italy through its partnership with Trenitalia.
The links between Milan and Emirates extend far beyond the airline’s triple daily service.
Emirates has been a proud sponsor of AC Milan since 2010, with the current shirt sponsorship contract in place until the end of the 2019/20 season.
Through its SkyCargo division, Emirates also facilitates the import and export of key products, connecting Italian companies to the world.
In 2015, Emirates transported 22,000 tonnes of cargo from Milan including cars, marble, food products like cheese and olive oil, pharmaceuticals, clothing and shoes bound for the UAE, India, Hong Kong, USA, Australia and Mexico.
