Emirates to Deploy Airbus A380 on Dubai-Moscow Service

Emirates has announced that it will be upgrading one of the two daily flights servicing its Dubai-Moscow route to an Airbus A380-800, commencing 1st December 2016.

Since Emirates started flying from its Dubai hub to Moscow in 2003, the airline has carried almost 3.5 million passengers on the route. Over the past 12 months, demand has increased, with some 400,000 passengers having travelled on the route.

The increased level of passenger support and demand has led to Emirates’ decision to bring its iconic A380 to the Russian capital, setting a new product quality level in the market.

From the beginning of December, on flight EK131/132, the three-class A380-800 will offer 14 Private Suites in First Class and 76 fully flat-bed mini-pods in Business Class on the upper deck.

It will also provide Onboard Shower Spas for First Class passengers and the iconic Emirates Onboard Lounge, where First Class and Business Class passengers can socialise at 40,000 feet, both products being unique to the Russian market.

An additional 426 seats in Economy, gives a total of 516 seats on the aircraft, increasing the number of seats on the route by 23%.

Moscow joins more than 40 Emirates A380 destination cities, offering Russian travellers the airline’s best-in-class onboard product and renowned service.
