At Emirates Airlines, it has given us the opportunity to redefine the travel experience, serve demand efficiently at airports with limited capacity, and boost our network growth. “The A380 will remain our main product and a pillar of our network plans for the coming years.”
Clark added: “The airplane we are getting today is equipped with the latest cabin products, including the Premium Economy Class. When we compare it to the first A380 we got in 2008, we will see the countless improvements and upgrades we have invested in, to ensure a unique and memorable Emirates A380 experience. We thank Airbus and all our program partners for enabling us to drive progress, launch many of the industry’s first innovations at the Emirates A380 and, most importantly, deliver the best product for our customers. ” In addition, Emirates Airlines announced the upgrade of its service to the Seychelles by performing two daily flights from December 24 to January 9, 2022, to meet demand during the holiday season and to offer more flexibility and travel options to customers.
