Emirates will launch its fourth daily Airbus A380 service between Dubai and Bangkok on 1 December 2015.
The new two-class A380 will replace the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft Emirates currently operates on the service. This will result in an increase of 255 seats per flight.
Flight EK376 departs Dubai at 0330 and arrives at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport at 1235 the same day. The return flight, EK377, then leaves Bangkok at 1600, arriving back in Dubai the same day at 1955.
“Thailand is an important market for Emirates and the A380 has been extremely popular with travellers since we first started the double-decker aircraft service to Thailand in 2009,” said Barry Brown, Emirates’ divisional senior vice president of commercial operations – east.
“For business and leisure travellers, the Dubai-Bangkok route is a popular choice and this additional A380 service will be instrumental in helping us meet growing passenger demand, as well as deliver substantial economic benefits through travel connections and inbound seats.”
Emirates’ new two-class A380 is the airline’s highest capacity aircraft, capable of carrying 615 passengers in two classes – 58 in business class and 557 in economy.
Emirates’ A380s now serve 34 destinations of which 11 are in the Far East: Auckland, Bangkok, Beijing, Brisbane, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Perth, Seoul, Singapore, Shanghai and Sydney.
