Airbus A380 returns - for some

The highly popular A380 aircraft will begin serving travellers on flights to Heathrow and Paris CDG starting from 15 July.

This marks the first reappearance of Emirates' flagship aircraft on scheduled services since the pandemic forced the temporary grounding of the airline's passenger fleet in March.  The on-board bar facility will not be available with the airline using Heathrow T2 and arrangements are being made for executive class passengers to facilitate an alternative lounge.

The return of the A380 follows the resumption of Emirates’ B777 300ER flights to and from Manchester and Heathrow, and the announcement that Dubai will re-open to business and leisure visitors from 7 July. The airline says the restarting of Dubai will see new air travel protocols that facilitate travel for UAE citizens, residents and tourists while safeguarding the health and safety of travellers and communities.

In addition, Emirates has announced that it will commence flights to Munich (from 15 July), adding to its revived network.

Emirates currently offers flights to over 40 cities, with connections through its Dubai hub for customers travelling between the Asia Pacific, the Gulf, Europe and the Americas. Visitors to Dubai should hold an international health insurance policy covering illness from Covid-19 for the duration of their stay.
