Emirates is to launch Airbus A380 services between Dubai - Bangkok and the vibrant city of Hong Kong.

Starting on 1 October 2010, Emirates’ A380 will operate daily from Dubai as EK384 via Bangkok with the return flight operating as EK385.

Emirates has a total of 12 A380s in service with 78 on order and Hong Kong will become the Dubai-based global airline’s 11th A380 destination.

“This commercially-vibrant metropolis [Hong Kong] became part of Emirates’ ever expanding network back in 1991, and today we operate a double-daily service between Hong Kong and Dubai, one non-stop and one flight via Bangkok. We also operate 18 weekly Emirates SkyCargo freighter services,” said Richard Jewsbury, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Far East and Australasia. “We are proud to be able to demonstrate our commitment to Hong Kong by putting our flagship aircraft on this route. Our passengers from Hong Kong now have the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful service and comforts available on this aircraft and our passengers from Thailand will have the option of flying the A380 to either Dubai or Hong Kong.”

Emirates’ A380 products include two onboard shower spas in the First Class cabin, featuring signature amenities by the airline’s premium spa brand, Timeless Spa. For First and Business Class passengers the onboard lounge features a fully-stocked bar and a selection of hot and cold canapés.

Flat-bed massage-equipped private suites await passengers in First Class, while in Business Class there is a new generation of all-aisle flat-bed seats, for those travelling on the main deck in Economy Class can stretch out in seats with a pitch of up to 33 inches.

In all classes, there is mood-lighting and ice, the inflight entertainment system, featuring over 1200 channels of on-demand entertainment, including movies and music in Thai and Cantonese.

Emirates currently operates the A380 from Dubai daily to Paris, Jeddah, Toronto, Seoul, Bangkok, Sydney, Auckland, Beijing and double daily to London Heathrow. On 1 September 2010 Emirates will begin daily flights with the A380 to Manchester and from 31 October the aircraft will make a welcome return to the non-stop service between Dubai and New York’s JFK airport.
