Emirates Airline’s state-of-the-art A380 aircraft will begin serving travellers on flights to London Heathrow and Paris starting from July 15.
This announcement marks the return of the carrier’s flagship aircraft on scheduled services since the pandemic forced the temporary grounding of the airline’s passenger fleet in March.
On the development, chief operating officer, Emirates Airline, Adel Al Redha stated: “The A380 remains a popular aircraft among our customers and it offers many unique on-board features. We are delighted to bring it back into the skies to serve our customers on flights to London and Paris from July 15, and we are looking forward to gradually introduce our A380 into more destinations according to the travel demand on specific destinations.
“The Emirates A380 experience remains unique in the industry, and even though we’ve modified services onboard for the health and safety of our crew and customers, we are confident that our customers would welcome flying again in this quiet, comfortable aircraft,” he concluded.
Further to this, Emirates Airline has commenced flights for travellers to Dhaka and will also be resuming services to Munich on July 15, adding to its growing network.
This follows the announcement earlier in the week that Dubai will reopen to business and leisure visitors from July 7, with new air travel protocols that facilitate travel for UAE citizens, residents and tourists while safeguarding the health and safety of travellers and communities.
