Closely following the successful deployment of Emirates’ Airbus A380 to Sydney and Auckland, the Dubai-based airline has confirmed it is to soon launch A380 flights to Bangkok, Thailand.

The existing EK 372/373 daily service will, from 1 June 2009, be operated by Emirates’ A380. EK 372 departs Dubai at 09:40 hours, arriving in Bangkok at 19:00 hours. It turns around as EK 373 departing Bangkok at 21:25 hours and arriving in Dubai at 00:30 hours the following morning.

Richard Vaughan, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, East Asia and Australasia said, “The introduction of the A380 on the Dubai-Bangkok-Dubai route will boost available capacity by 30% and contribute to increasing tourist arrivals from Dubai and the larger Middle East - already an attractive inbound market for Thailand with steady year-on-year growth.”

The United Kingdom is a key inbound market for Thailand and Emirates’ A380 network also includes London Heathrow. The airline’s new Bangkok service will facilitate a seamless A380 experience for UK tourists travelling to/from Thailand.

Emirates A380’s ground-breaking in-flight product includes onboard shower spas in the First Class cabin featuring signature products by the airline’s premium spa brand, Timeless Spa. The onboard lounge for First and Business class customers mirrors the ambience of an executive club and includes a bar with a wide range of beverages and canapés.

With flat-bed massage-equipped private suites in First Class, a new generation of intelligent seating and flat-beds in Business Class, mood-lighting, and an impressive in-flight entertainment system featuring over 1000 channels of on-demand entertainment, the Emirates’ A380 heralds a whole new level of comfort and luxury. It is set in a three-class configuration (14 First, 76 Business and 399 Economy Class) and spread over two levels with the whole of the upper deck dedicated to Premium Class passengers.
