For those who love the Airbus A380, there’s good news – Emirates is planning to reintroduce the type on its Dubai to Bangkok route.
It will reintroduce the A380 operation from 28th November 2021. The aircraft upgrade will help Emirates to meet strong passenger demand for inbound travel into the popular holiday destination.
The daily A380 flights will operate as EK372/373, adding capacity and frequency to its flights to Bangkok. It will offer a three-class service aboard, with seats in First Class, Business Class and Economy Class.
The deployment of the double-decker aircraft will complement the existing services, EK384/385, also operating on a daily basis with a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a three-class configuration, in addition to its five weekly flights to Bangkok via Phuket, operating as EK378/379, which is set to increase its frequency to daily from 1 December.
Booked operation is as follows
EK372 DEPART DXB 09:30 ARRIVE BKK 18:40
EK373 DEAPRT BKK 20:35 ARRIVE DXB 00:50+1 Commences 28th November Booked Equipment: Airbus A380 Three-Class
With the easing of travel restrictions, Emirates will also serve its customers in Thailand and other regional points with access to preferred destinations on its global network spanning more than 120 destinations, via its hub in Dubai.
The additional flights will provide more choice, convenient timings, and seamless connectivity to its customers across the globe.
The additional flight to be operated by the A380 aircraft on the Dubai-Bangkok route and additional services scheduled for its flight via Phuket will provide more than 8,600 additional seats a week.
With Bangkok being a prime leisure destination- as well as business, it seems that those who want to let their hair down are in the mood to travel, with demand exceeding the current flights and the first A380 to return to the city.
Hopefully, demand will continue to surge to allow more of these giants of the sky to come out of slumber and take to their homes.
