Emirates will boost its services to Osaka, Japan with the introduction of the A380 starting from 1 June 2024. The A380 will be retrofitted with the airline’s Premium Economy cabin, making it the second Japanese gateway to operate with the newly upgraded aircraft.
The upgraded service will offer increased seat capacity on flights to and from Japan’s second largest city, in addition to introducing the highly sought-after Premium Economy Class for customers, as well as refreshed interiors across First, Business and Economy Class cabins.
The four-class A380 to Osaka will replace the Boeing 777-300ER currently on the service. It will feature 14 First Class suites, 76 lie-flat seats in Business Class, 56 seats in Premium Economy Class and 338 ergonomically designed seats in Economy Class.
With upgraded A380 operations, Emirates will offer 910 additional weekly seats between Dubai and Osaka, offering more opportunities to connect to and beyond Dubai to popular destinations for travelers including Milan, Madrid, Brazil, Paris and London.
On a four-class Emirates Airbus A380, the Premium Economy cabin is located at the front of the main deck with the 56 seats laid out in a 2-4-2 configuration.
In the cabin, every inch of space anticipates customer needs with a generous seat pitch and width for working and relaxing, and customised features that offer function and convenience like in-seat charging points and a side cocktail table. The experience is rounded off with expertly curated in-flight amenities, an inventive menu and extensive beverage options.
Emirates’ "ice" in-flight entertainment includes up to 6,500 channels of movies, TV programs, and music. Customers flying in both Business and First Class will enjoy access to Emirates' onboard lounge, while First Class passengers will have exclusive access to the airline’s luxurious shower spa.
In addition, passengers can enjoy Emirates' award-winning signature hospitality, and meals prepared using carefully selected ingredients from around the world.
