Emirates expands A380 services

18-Mar-2009

As Emirates’ experience with the A380 grows, so does its scheduled services. From June 1, the aircraft will debut in Canada while a new Thai route will extend the aircraft's presence in Asia.

“The A380 will allow Emirates to address some of the unmet need in Toronto while in Bangkok it will help support the Thai government’s new tourism initiatives,” said Emirates President Tim Clark. The change on both services will provide a capacity increase of about 30% for each route.

The airline will accept another four A380 aircraft into its fleet in the next financial year and will introduce services to Seoul in December. It has shrugged off recent press speculation about poor serviceability of its fledgling fleet of ‘super jumbos’, saying "Our confidence in the A380 remains unchanged; it is an excellent aircraft and feedback from our customers thus far has been very positive. We have no plans to cancel any orders."
