Emirates Launches A380 Flights to Vienna; Increases Services to Los Angeles

[HD video below] Emirates has launched its second daily A380 service from Dubai International Airport (DXB) to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), and added Vienna as the latest destination to be served by the hugely popular Emirates A380 aircraft.

The new flight to Los Angeles, EK217, operated by an Airbus A380-800 aircraft, is configured with 3 cabin classes with 14 private suites in First class, 76 seats in Business class and 401 seats in Economy class.

“We’re thrilled to continue growing our footprint in Los Angeles, the second largest city in the United States, and to be able to provide more flight choices to more customers daily as well as doubling the economic benefits Emirates’ flights provide to Southern California,” said Rob Gurney Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations, the Americas. “We strive to give our customers the best possible travel experience every step of the way through our award-winning service and industry-leading products.”

In addition to serving those visiting or traveling to Los Angeles, passengers wishing to travel beyond LA to nearby destinations in the U.S. can take advantage of Emirates’ partnership with Virgin America and Alaska Airlines.

 For example, through Alaska Airlines, Emirates passengers can connect from LAX to cities such as Eugene, Mammoth Lakes, Monterey, Portland, Santa Rosa, and Guadalajara. Through Virgin America, passengers can travel onwards to Las Vegas, Fort Lauderdale, Cancun and more.

The new Emirates flight EK217, departs Dubai daily at 15:00 and arrives in Los Angeles at 20:00. The return flight EK218, departs Los Angeles daily at 22:30 and arrives in Dubai approximately 16 hours later at 01:30.

 This new service supplements the current EK215 Airbus A380-800 flight which departs Dubai at 08:55 and lands in Los Angeles at 13:55. The existing return flight, EK216, departs LAX 16:45 and arrives in Dubai 19:35 the following day.

Emirates also operates two Boeing 777-200F freighters each week to LAX.

Vienna has joined the family of A380 scheduled destinations served by an Emirates A380.

 Emirates is the first and only airline to operate an A380 into the Austrian capital. Vienna is the 41st Airbus A380 destination within the Emirates global network.

Emirates currently offers double daily flights from Vienna to the international hub in Dubai. Now, the rotation EK127/EK128 is deployed by an Airbus A380 in a three-class configuration with 14 private suites in First, 76 lie-flat seats in Business and 429 spacious seats in Economy.

 The second daily flight (EK125/EK126) will remain being operated by a Boeing 777-300ER with a seating capacity of 360.
