Emirates Airline will deploy its A380 aircraft on its four-times-daily London Heathrow route on November 27, as well as on its six-times-weekly Manchester route on December 2.
The airline will also enhance its current twice-weekly A380 service to Moscow to a daily service, starting from November 25.
Emirates Airline has revealed plans to increase flights to Birmingham and Glasgow from the current four-times-weekly to daily services at both cities, from November 27 and December 1 respectively.
The carrier’s service to Manchester will increase from the current eight-a-week to 10 flights per week from December 1, of which six will be served by an A380 and four with a Boeing 777-300ER. At London Heathrow, Emirates Airline’s current twice daily A380 and once daily Boeing 777 flights will become four daily A380 services from November 27.
These represent a significant expansion of Emirates Airline’s services to the UK, following the recent establishment of the UK-UAE air travel corridor, which has led to increased demand. Under the air travel corridor, travellers entering the UK from the UAE will no longer be required to quarantine and speaks to the UAE’s rigorous and effective pandemic response. In the other direction, UK travellers heading to Dubai can opt to do their COVID-19 PCR tests 96 hours in advance of their flight, or to do the test on arrival in Dubai, adding to the ease of travel.
