Emirates has completed their its A380 flight to Melbourne and Auckland.
Emirates has celebrated the first of its Airbus A380 flights to Melbourne this week.
It was one of three flights to Australia that will now depart from Dubai each day and after a short stay in Melbourne the planes then make their way to Auckland.
The A380 is believed by many to set the standard for long-haul travel, with the first-class cabins having private suites and shower spas, while the economy deck has plenty of room for passengers to move around.
Its inclusion into Emirates’ daily Australian schedule means the airline’s capacity is now more than 500 seats a day.
All travellers on the super jumbo will also have access to the award-winning Ice entertainment package, which has more than 1,400 channels.
Yesterday (October 3rd), also saw Emirates take its total of A380s to 25.
“Our A380s are specifically deployed on high density routes where extra capacity is needed and have been well-received by passengers,” said Adel al Redha, executive vice-president of engineering and operations at the carrier.
