Emirates to Deploy Airbus A380 Between Dubai and Glasgow
Emirates will introduce a daily A380 service between Glasgow and Dubai from 16 April 2019. It will be the first time the double decker aircraft will operate on a scheduled basis to Scotland.
The Emirates A380 will have a three class cabin configuration, offering 14 private suites in First Class, 76 lie flat seats in Business Class, and 399 spacious seats in Economy Class.
The larger capacity A380 will replace Emirates’ current twice daily Boeing 777 service between Glasgow and Dubai from 16 April until 31 May 2019.
The deployment of the A380 is to minimise the reduction of Emirates’ capacity from Glasgow to Dubai and beyond during this period.
The A380 flight will depart Dubai at 1450hrs and arrive in Glasgow at 1945hrs, while the return flight will leave Glasgow at 2130hrs and land in Dubai at 0755hrs the next morning.
From 1 June until 30 September, the double daily service will be reinstated on the route, with the A380 operating on the first flight of the day, and a Boeing 777 on the second service.
