Emirates’ eight daily London flights set to become all-A380

Third daily A380 to London Gatwick from January 1st 2016

Emirates’ eight daily flights to London will all be served by the highly popular A380s from January 1st 2016, cementing the airline’s status as the largest international A380 operator into the British capital.

The third A380 into London Gatwick will replace Emirates flights EK011/EK012 from 1st January 2016, providing customers with a consistent A380 experience no matter what time of day they travel.

“The deployment of a third A380 to London Gatwick now means that travellers to and from London can enjoy our world-class A380 on every flight,” said Hubert Frach, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations West.

“In the last five years we have increased capacity into London by over 25 percent. This demonstrates the attractiveness of the A380 with its ability to serve customer demand at slot-constrained points without the need for adding another frequency.”

“The additional A380 service also means that passengers can now experience Emirates’ flagship A380 experience all the way through to London from popular inbound destinations such as Bangkok, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Shanghai, further strengthening our position as a provider of world class travel.’’

Emirates has steadily grown its London A380 operations since first deploying the aircraft on a scheduled service to Heathrow in December 2008 – the second A380 destination to join the airline’s network.

The Emirates A380 offers spacious seating in Economy Class, access to the world’s only onboard Shower Spas for First Class passengers and the Onboard Lounge where First Class and Business Class passengers can socialise at 40,000 feet. Passengers throughout all classes can also enjoy access to over 2,000 channels of films, TV shows, music and games through ice, the airline’s award-winning inflight entertainment system as well as free Wi-Fi connectivity and gourmet cuisine.

As with all Emirates flights, passengers benefit from a generous baggage allowance of 30kg in Economy Class, 40kg in Business Class and 50kg in First Class.

Emirates currently has 35 A380 destinations across its network with Copenhagen joining the airlines A380 network from 1st December.
