Emirates has announced that it will expand its A380 operations with the iconic double-decker returning to Glasgow on March 26, 2023 and Birmingham on July 1, 2023.
The airline will also resume its second daily service to Stansted starting from May 1, 2023, using its wide-body Boeing 777-300ER aircraft fitted with the ‘Game Changer’ First Class product. With the reintroduction of a second daily flight to Stansted, Emirates will strengthen its operations to London with 11 daily flights, including six times daily to London Heathrow and three times daily to Gatwick.
The Emirates A380 boasts unique on-board features such as the Onboard Lounge and First Class Shower Spa. Customers can also enjoy more than 5,000 channels of on-demand entertainment via the industry’s largest screens across all cabins.
The first Emirates A380 to be completely refurbished under the airline’s two billion dollar retrofit program was deployed on the Dubai-London Heathrow service earlier this month. The aircraft features Premium Economy cabin, and Emirates’ latest cabin interiors including lighter colour palettes in First and Business Class.
Emirates is the largest operator of Airbus A380, with more than 80 aircraft currently in active service. The airline first launched A380 operations to Birmingham in 2016 and Glasgow in 2019.
