Emirates brings A380 back to Heathrow
Emirates has resumed passenger flights on board its Airbus A380 aircraft between London Heathrow and Dubai International.
This marks the first Emirates A380 flight to London since the pandemic forced the temporary grounding of the airline’s passenger fleet in March.
The A380 is the world’s largest passenger aircraft, with a wingspan of 79.8 metres and a double-decker cabin which now features a comprehensive set of new safety measures.
Emirates also restarted A380 services to Paris and passenger services to seven more cities - Athens, Barcelona, Geneva, Glasgow, Larnaca, Munich and Rome.
Richard Jewsbury, divisional vice president, UK, Emirates, said: “Our teams in London and Dubai are delighted to bring Emirates’ flagship A380 aircraft back to London Heathrow.
“We’ve modified services onboard for the health and safety of our crew and customers and look forward to welcoming more passengers as it returns to the skies over London once again.”
