Emirates to Deploy Airbus A380 to Osaka, Japan
Emirates will deploy the Airbus A380 on its daily service between Dubai and Osaka in Japan with effect from 28 October 2018, replacing the 777-300ER currently on the service.
The A380 represents a capacity increase of 38% while travellers will enjoy the comfort of an A380 to and from two Japanese gateways, as the aircraft already operates daily to Narita.
Flight EK316 will leave Dubai at 0305hrs and arrive Osaka at 1655hrs. Flight EK317 departs Osaka at 2335hrs and lands in Dubai at 0545hrs the next morning.
The A380 on Dubai-Osaka route will offer a total of 489 seats in a three-class configuration, with 399 Economy Class seats, 76 lie-flat Business Class seats and 14 First Class Private Suites.
This year marks the 10th year of Emirates’ A380 operations. With a fleet size of 103, and with 59 additional aircraft on order, Emirates is the largest Airbus A380 operator in the world.
As Osaka becomes the latest destination on Emirates’ A380 network, passengers travelling from the Kansai region in Japan can enjoy a seamless A380 experience to popular destinations via Dubai, including London, Moscow, Mauritius, Paris, and many more.
