Munich and the A380

Emirates has announced it is bringing forward its first daily A380 service to Germany by serving Munich from 25 November, nearly five weeks earlier than originally scheduled.  The aircraft was initially set to replace EK 49, one of two daily services to Munich, from 1 January 2012.

The carrier made the decision after reviewing its forthcoming A380 deliveries and expected demand.  From 1 September, Emirates increased Dubai – Hamburg capacity from once to twice daily, taking to 56 its total number of weekly passenger frequencies to Germany.  The current double daily Frankfurt service now has four frequencies per week and will become a triple daily operation from 1 December.

Competition on the six-hour sector will come from Lufthansa with 747s and Condor, now a holiday airline and part of Thomas Cook. www.munich-airport.de
