Emirates to introduce A380 to Brisbane

As Emirates continue to refine their network, more A380’s seem to be serving more destinations.

Their next stop seems to be at Brisbane as part of a stopover onto Auckland. The timetable looks like this:

EK434 DEPART DXB 10:25 ARRIVE BNE 06:05+1 DEPART 07:50+1  ARRIVE AKL 14:15+1
EK435 DEPART AKL 18:30 ARRIVE BNE 19:15   DEPART 21:00    ARRIVE DXB 05:20+1

Effective from 1st October 2013
Booked equipment: Airbus A380
Equipment until 30th September: Boeing 777-300ER

Changes from Aukland start 1 day later.

There is also another result with this change – and that’s Aukland will have a 3x daily service to Dubai with Airbus A380 equipment.

The Dubai – Brisbane – Auckland service will be operated with a 489 seater A380 on this route.

For Brisbane and Aukland, it’s more capacity that Emirates will be happy to sell.

    “Equipment until 31st September: Boeing 777-300ER”
    Does someone want to tell them that there are only 30 days in September?
