[HD video below] Emirates has launched Airbus A380 flights to Kuwait.

The Emirates’ A380 flight to Kuwait is just one hour and 45 minutes, the shortest A380 service in operation today. Since 2008, the airline has carried 27.5 million travellers on its now 50 A380s.

Kuwait is only the second market in the Middle East to be served by the airline’s flagship aircraft after the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

“This is a proud moment for the airline,” said Sheikh Majid Al Mualla, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Centre. “We have gradually built up our services to Kuwait since 1989 and we now offer five daily flights, soon to become six. After experiencing the airline’s award winning products and services over the years, travellers to and from Kuwait can now enjoy our flagship aircraft, the most popular commercial aircraft flying today.”

The surprisingly quiet Emirates Airbus A380 aircraft offers 14 First Class Private Suites, 76 mini-pods in Business Class and 399 seats in Economy Class. 

EK857 leaves Dubai at 16:00 and arrives in Kuwait at 16:45 local time. EK858 departs Kuwait at 18:25 and lands in Dubai at 21:10.

Over the 25 years of service , around 7.8 million passengers have been carried on the Kuwait route. In the past five years alone, Emirates SkyCargo, has moved over 140 million kilogrammes of commodities, further supporting the Kuwait economy. Imports have included meat, fruits, vegetables, clothing, pharmaceuticals and construction equipment, while mobile phones, watches, drilling equipment and tyres have featured amongst the exports.
