Emirates will commence a second daily A380 service from Dubai to Perth on 1st August this year, replacing the current 777-300ER aircraft operating on EK424/EK425.
The second daily A380 service to Perth follows Emirates’ recent announcement that its flagship A380 aircraft will serve more destinations in 2016.
For East-bound destinations, this includes a new two-class A380 service to Kuala Lumpur which launched on 1st January, and a two-class A380 service on the Taipei route starting 1st May 2016.
Other A380 destinations on the airline’s Far East and Australasia network are: Auckland, Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Seoul, Singapore, Shanghai, Sydney and Brisbane.
Emirates was the first airline to begin A380 services to the West Australian capital in May last year with the aircraft introduced on EK420/EK421.
With the up-gauge of the second service to an A380, Emirates will be able to transport over 14,000 passengers inbound and outbound between Dubai and Perth per week.
