Upgrading capacity into New York by 1848 seats per week, flights EK203 and EK204 will now be operated by the Airbus A380-800.

EK203 departs from Dubai at 02:25, arriving at JFK at 07:45. The return sector EK204 leaves JFK at 10:40 arriving in Dubai at 08:10 the next day.

 In Paris, an additional 2198 seats per week will be added; EK 075 leaves Dubai at 15:00 and arrives in Paris at 19:30. The return flight, EK 076 departs Paris at 21:10 and gets into Dubai at 06:40 the next day.

“The decision to commit a second A380 to both New York and Paris is a clear indication of customer demand, for the state-of-the-art aircraft and these two popular destinations,” said Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ Executive Vice President, Passenger Sales Worldwide. “New York and Paris are both important routes for Emirates and its customers. Adding larger capacity aircraft is central to helping us meet growing passenger demand and will also boost economic support for American and French international commerce.”

Emirates has the world’s largest fleet of A380 aircraft at 31, and still has another 59 on order. In the four years since the Emirates A380 has been in operation over 11.5 million passengers have flown on the aircraft, covering 169 million kilometres.
