Emirates to Deploy Airbus A380 to Sao Paulo, Brazil
Emirates will operate the first ever scheduled commercial Airbus A380 flight to South America when it upgrades its Dubai (DXB) – Sao Paulo (GRU) service on March 26, 2017.
Replacing the existing Boeing 777-300ER currently on the route, the A380 service will mark the airline’s 10th year of operations in Brazil.
Sao Paulo will join more than 40 destinations on Emirates’ network served by the A380 aircraft, including, London, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Beijing, Taipei, Seoul, Shanghai, and Guangzhou.
Flight EK261 will leave Dubai (DXB) every day at 08:35 and arrive in Sao Paulo (GRU) at 16:30. The return flight, EK262, departs Sao Paulo (GRU) at 01:25 and lands in Dubai (DXB) at 22:55.
Emirates started flying to Brazil in 2007 with a non-stop service between Dubai and Sao Paulo. In 2012, it expanded its presence in Brazil with the start of a daily service to Rio de Janeiro.
