Posted: 13-Jun-16 09:16

Dubai's leading airline, Emirates, has upgraded its daily service between Heathrow in London to Dubai, from a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft to an Airbus A380. The new aircraft has room for an additional 150 passengers, and with six daily services available between Heathrow and Dubai, the carrier can now transport nearly 3,000 passengers between the two destinations every day.

Emirates flights between Heathrow and Dubai upgraded to Airbus A380

Emirates has announced it has upgraded the aircraft used for its daily flights between Heathrow Airport in London and Dubai International Airport. The carrier has swapped the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft for an Airbus A380 on all of its daily services.

The Airbus A380 provides an additional 150 seats a day, and with six daily flights, the airline is transporting nearly 3,000 passengers between Heathrow and Dubai every day.

Laurie Berryman, the Vice President for Emirates in UK explained:

“We launched our first service to Heathrow in 1991 and since then demand for travel from London to Dubai and beyond has seen tremendous growth. In the last 25 years we have carried over 20 million passengers on the route. As the economies of both London and Dubai continue to grow, we’re confident that the next 25 years will be just as successful as the last, as we continue to connect people and businesses across the globe.”

In March this year, Emirates launched a sixth daily service from Heathrow to Dubai. The airline’s schedule of daily flights between the two destinations depart London at 9.05am, 14.15pm, 16.55pm, 19.50pm, 20.40pm and 22.15pm, and the return flights depart Dubai at 02.30am, 07.45am, 09.40am, 11.30am, 14.15pm and 15.45pm.

In 2016, Emirates will acquire a total of 37 new aircraft, including 21 A380s and 16 B777-300ERs. The airline currently operates more than 70 A380 superjumbos, and in 2015, it launched a two-class version of the double decker aircraft. The airline operates flights from Manchester, London Heathrow and Birmingham, to Dubai throughout the year.

Earlier this year, Boeing and Emirates launched a joint video campaign called “View From Above” that showcased Dubai’s attractions and landscapes from the sky using aerial photography and drones. The video had footage of the emirate’s natural and manmade attractions such as the Burj Al Arab, Atlantis The Palm, Palm Islands, and the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

Emirates is the largest airline in the Middle East, and it started offering commercial flights in 1985. Since then it has become region’s leading airline, and it now provides routes to destinations in more than 70 countries all over the world.
