Dubai's flag carrier, Emirates, will launch a third daily Airbus A380 service to London Heathrow. This will mean three out of the airline’s five daily flights to London Heathrow will be served by the superjumbo.
The third A380 service into Heathrow is another major investment for Emirates in the UK, where it operates 105 weekly flights via six gateways; London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow.
The Airbus A380, known for its quietness and spaciousness, offers 14 flat-bed First Class Private Suites with electrically operated doors and 76 fully-flat seats in Business Class - all with aisle access - on the upper deck. Downstairs, there are 427 comfortable contoured seats in Economy, spread across four separate cabins.
Passengers in all classes can settle down to more than 1000 channels of films, television programmes, music and games carried on the ice entertainment system.
Emirates has currently a fleet of 17 Airbus A380s amongst a total fleet of 162 aircraft, flying to 116 destinations.
