Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Monday, 4 January 2010

 Emirates has launched Airbus A380 superjumbo services between Dubai and Paris. From 17 January 2010, the airline will operate the A380 Dubai-Paris route daily.

Salem Obaidalla, Emirates' Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Europe & the Russian Federation, said, "The superjumbo will gradually replace the morning 777 service out of Dubai, becoming daily from 17th January. The demand for Emirates' services on this route has always been extremely high and it is fitting that one of our Airbus A380s is being deployed to serve France, the headquarters of Airbus, and from where the A380 story unfolded. For us, the A380 has come full circle and what a wonderful way this is to end 2009."

France became part of the airline's European network in 1992. Nineteen weekly passengers flights into the country are made up of a double daily service to Paris and daily flights into Nice.

The 489-seat superjumbo will initially replace EK 073 on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. The flight leaves Dubai at 08:00 and arrives in Paris at 12:25. The return flight, EK 074, leaves Charles De Gaulle at 14:30 and gets into Dubai at 23:59.

As before, the second flight of the day, EK 075, departs Dubai at 15:00 and arrives in the French capital at 19:30. Heading back, EK 076 takes off from CDG at 21:05 to land in Dubai at 06:35 the following day.
