The first commercial flight of an A380 to the country was scheduled in celebration of the island’s 45th anniversary of independence.

“Emirates operation of the first commercial flight of an A380 to Mauritius on such a symbolic day is testament to the importance of the destination in our network,” said Tim Clark, President of Emirates. “Our partnership with the country and Air Mauritius has been strong since we started our operations ten years ago. As a major partner of the tourism industry, we will continue to support the island throughout our network to stimulate in-bound traffic.”

The Emirates’ A380 is renowned for its First Class Private Suites, Shower Spas and on-board lounge for First Class and Business Class passengers [see video below], offering a wide range of drinks and canapés, as well as space to socialise or simply relax.

 Its three-class configuration boasts 14 private First Class Suites, 76 lie-flat beds in Business Class and 427 seats in Economy Class.

Passengers across all cabins will get to enjoy over 1,400 channels on Emirates’ Digital Widescreen inflight entertainment system, ice and stay connected to the internet throughout their journey with high speed Wi-Fi access.

As the world’s largest operator of the double-decker aircraft, Emirates’ fleet of 31 A380s now serves 21 destinations including: Jeddah, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Amsterdam, Shanghai, Moscow, Rome, Seoul, London Heathrow, Melbourne, Munich, Beijing, Sydney, Auckland, Manchester, Tokyo, Paris, Toronto and New York.

In January, Concourse A which is home of the Emirates A380, opened at Dubai International Airport. The concourse is the world’s first purpose-built A380 concourse with 20 gates capable of handling the aircraft.
