Emirates has announced that it will be deploying its A380 aircraft to even more destinations across its network for 2016.

Birmingham, Prague, and Taipei have been added to the list of Emirates A380 destinations, making Emirates the first and only airline to operate a scheduled A380 service from each of these destinations.

There are currently 36 A380 destinations on the Emirates network, setting the industry benchmark for both A380 connectivity and customer experience.

Emirates’ daily Birmingham flight, EK39/40, will be up-gauged to an A380 beginning 27th March 2016. Emirates A380 services to Prague and Taiwan will start from 1st May 2016. Additionally, Barcelona will be served with a second daily Emirates A380 service from 1st June 2016.

Thierry Antinori, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at Emirates said: “The introduction and increase of Emirates’A380 services in these strategic destinations means more travellers will have the opportunity to experience our industry-leading A380 product.”

“Our onboard innovations on the A380, across all classes, continue to impress and delight our customers. Deploying larger capacity aircraft, such as the A380, also helps us to efficiently meet growing passenger demand in these markets, contribute to tourism development and enhance customer choice and options.”

Flying the world’s largest fleet of A380 aircraft at 71, Emirates continues to set the pace for A380 deployment. Since the first flight was launched in 2008, the aircraft has flown over 42 million passengers and covered over 630 million kilometres.
