Emirates will have eight A380 flights daily to London as soon as they ply the largest passenger airliner for its third daily London Gatwick flight from January 1, 2016. The Dubai based carrier already has five A380 rotations daily to London Heathrow.

Emirates to Use A380 Flights

Counting in the airline’s double daily A380 services to Manchester, Emirates will operate 70 A380 flights per week to the UK.

“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 A380 offers spacious seating in Economy Class and features the world’s only onboard Shower Spas for First Class passengers. All passengers have access to more than 2,000 channels of films, TV shows, music and games through ICE, the airline’s award-winning in-flight entertainment system.

Emirates operates 119 weekly flights to the UK via six gateways: London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow.

As far as the airline’s global A380 network is concerned, as many as 35 destinations are being served by the carrier via the large airliner.
