Emirates Adds More Airbus A380s to Australia Routes

Emirates, the Dubai-based airline, has announced that it will be adding more Airbus A380s to its Australia routes. This move comes as a response to the high demand for travel in Australia during the busy period between December and early February.


The Upgrade

Emirates is upgrading its Sydney services to all Airbus A380 flights. The airline currently operates two daily A380 flights with a third daily, EK416/417, flown by a Boeing 777-300ER. The third A380 will replace the 777-300ER from November 4 and add nearly 2,000 extra weekly seats by making it an all-A380 route. Each return flight adds more than 260 additional daily seats in a three-class layout of 489 seats, complementing the two other flights that have the four-class configuration featuring Emirates' latest premium economy cabin.

The Aircraft

The Airbus A380 is known for its superior standards of in-flight comfort, from first class to economy. As the world’s largest and most spacious passenger aircraft, its cabin allows travelers to stretch out in a calm and relaxing environment. It has two full-length decks with widebody dimensions. With more seats than any other aircraft, the A380 offers a solution for traffic growth and airport congestion as we emerge from the pandemic. The A380 features an improved glass cockpit, and fly-by-wire flight controls linked to side-sticks. The improved cockpit displays feature eight 15-by-20 cm (6-by-8-inch) liquid crystal displays, all of which are physically identical and interchangeable⁸. The A380 features a bulbless illumination system. LEDs are employed in the cabin, cockpit, cargo, and other fuselage areas. The cabin lighting features programmable multi-spectral LEDs capable of creating a cabin ambiance simulating daylight, night, or shades in between.

Looking Ahead

Emirates is also considering resuming nonstop services to Adelaide with the introduction of the Airbus A350, to expand and improve connectivity options for Australian travelers. This move by Emirates marks an important milestone in its post-COVID recovery phase. It's an exciting development for passengers looking forward to experiencing the airline's world-class products and services once again.
