Emirates to Launch Airbus A380-800 Flights to Moscow, Russia

Emirates has confirmed that it is to upgrade one of its two daily flights on the Dubai-Moscow route to an Airbus A380-800, from 1 December 2016.

From the beginning of December, on flight EK131/132, the three-class A380-800 will offer 14 Private Suites in First Class and 76 fully flat-bed mini-pods in Business Class on the upper deck.

The A380 will also provide Onboard Shower Spas for First Class passengers and the iconic Emirates Onboard Lounge, where First Class and Business Class passengers can socialise at 40,000 feet.

 An additional 426 seats in Economy, gives a total of 516 seats on the aircraft, increasing the number of seats on the route by 23%.

Operating a higher capacity aircraft helps serve the growing demand from both leisure and business travellers.

 Outbound from Moscow, Dubai, with its family-friendly attractions and soon-to-open new theme parks is always popular with Russian travellers, as are the Indian Ocean islands, Thailand and Bali. Upcoming and recently launched Emirates routes like Cebu, Yinchuan, Zhengzhou and Yangon as well as Hanoi and the third daily flight to Cape Town are also expected to prove popular.

 Inbound, the A380 supports both tourism and trade in the market, bringing in travellers from Far East, Africa and Middle East to Russia and facilitating export through Emirates SkyCargo to countries worldwide on the Emirates network.

Moscow joins more than 40 Emirates A380 destination cities. Passengers in all cabins can enjoy Emirates inflight entertainment system, ice Digital Widescreen, which offers more than 2,500 channels of films, TV programmes, music and podcasts. Passengers travelling on the A380 can also stay easily connected to family, friends and colleagues with free onboard Wi-Fi.

The Emirates experience begins with complimentary chauffeur drive to and from the airport for Business Class and First Class passengers and access to Emirates exclusive airport lounges.

 As with all Emirates flights, passengers benefit from a generous baggage allowance of 30kg in Economy Class, 40kg in Business Class and 50kg in First Class.
