Emirates to Launch Fourth Daily Airbus A380 Flight to Sydney, Australia

Emirates has unveiled plans to launch a fourth daily service from Dubai to Sydney starting 25 March 2018.

The new flights will be operated by Emiratesí Airbus A380 aircraft and will increase passenger capacity on the route by 6,846 seats a week, inbound and outbound between Sydney and Emiratesí hub in Dubai, a 7.3% increase in capacity for Emiratesí Australian services.

The move complements Qantasí re-routing of its current Sydney to London service via Singapore (instead of Dubai), and means that Emirates passengers will be able to enjoy seamless ďA380 to A380Ē connections to 48 destinations.

Between 25 March and 30 March 2018, the inbound service EK416 will depart Dubai at 20:40, arriving in Sydney at 17:20 the following day. Due to daylight savings from 31 March 2018, the arrival time changes to 16:30 the following day.

Between 26 March to 31 March 2018, the outbound service EK417 will depart Sydney at 17:05, arriving in Dubai at 00:25 the following day. Due to daylight savings from 1 April, the outbound service EK417 will depart Sydney 16:15, arriving the same time the following day. All services will be operated by an A380 aircraft.

The A380 aircraft offers 489 seats in a three-class cabin configuration with 14 private suites in First Class, 76 flat-bed seats in Business Class and 399 spacious seats in Economy. 

Earlier this year Emirates announced plans to enhance its Australian services, with a third daily service set to be introduced between Dubai and Brisbane from 1 December 2017 and operated by a B777-200LR. Emirates will also upgauge its third daily flight between Dubai and Melbourne from a B777-300ER to an A380 from 25 March 2018. This change will ensure all three of Emiratesí daily flights to Melbourne will be serviced by A380 aircraft.

All passengers can enjoy over 2,500 channels on Emiratesí inflight entertainment system ice, gourmet food and wine across all classes and generous baggage allowances. Emirates also recently improved its onboard connectivity with up to 20MB of complementary in-flight Wi-Fi.

Emirates currently operates 77 weekly flights from Dubai to Australia, with flights to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. The third daily service to Brisbane and fourth daily service to Sydney will bring this to 91 weekly flights.
