Emirates has confirmed that it is to deploy an Airbus A380 on the Dubai - Paris route one month earlier than planned. The airline had previously announced that the super-jumbo would head to Paris Charles de Gaulle from 1st February next year, but an operational review, coupled with demand on the route, has led the airline to launch A380 operations on 29 December 2009.

The 489-seat A380 aircraft will be incorporated into Emirates' double daily flights to Paris. It will initially service three of the morning departures from Dubai, becoming daily from 17th January 2010.

Salem Obaidalla, Emirates' Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Europe & Russian Federation, said, Our forward carryings out of France are extremely strong. Coupled with the earlier aircraft availability on that route, it means we can provide passengers with the experience of flying this highly popular aircraft between Dubai and Paris much sooner than originally anticipated. It also provides our passengers with an earlier A380 service all the way through to Sydney, Auckland, Bangkok and, soon, Seoul."

The A380 serving Paris will have a configuration of 14 Private Suites in First Class, 76 new generation, fully flat seats in Business Class and 399 seats in the Economy cabin.

The A380 will depart Dubai at 0800hrs and arrives in Paris at 1225hrs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. It leaves Paris at 1430hrs and arrives in Dubai at 2359hrs.
