Emirates, Dubai-based airline, has recently announced the launch of Airbus A380 on flights to Mumbai in India from July, offering added options for business and leisure travellers who seek tickets on the route.
Dubai based carrier, Emirates is planning to deploy world’s biggest passenger plane Airbus A380 on flights operating from Dubai International Airport to Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport. It is one of the busiest airports in India receiving tons of international travellers who book tickets from all over the world.
“Emirates plans to deploy an A380 on one of its existing daily services between Dubai to Mumbai, starting from July and is working closely with Mumbai Airport Authorities to make this deployment possible,” said the airline’s representative.
“In addition we have plans to upgrade existing aircraft to larger capacity Boeing 777s to Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai starting from 01 June. We will announce details shortly,” he further added.
The super jumbo aircraft is one of the most advanced passenger planes in the world. The carrier offers tickets for private suites and shower spas in First Class; flat-bed seats in Business Class and custom lighting in Economy Class.
The airline currently operates a total of around 185 weekly flights to India. With the introduction of A380 that can accommodate 850 people in a single class configuration and 550-600 passengers in a three-class configuration, there will be a sudden hike in the availability flights tickets on Dubai-Mumbai sector.
Apart from Emirates, Singapore Airlines also announced the launch of this aircraft on India routes from May 30.
It is expected that the launch of A380 will directly benefit business travellers and leisure fliers who seek more flexible options on tickets aboard India flights. Plus, it is also going to prove helpful for Britons and other foreign travellers who seek tickets on connecting flights to India via Dubai.
