Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Thursday, 9 April 2015

Emirates is to launch a second daily Airbus A380 service to Zurich, adding 945 seats a week on the route, with 280 in First Class and Business Class.

Commencing 1 October 2015, Emirates flights EK85/86, currently operated by a Boeing 777-300ER, will be upgraded to an A380.

The first A380 was introduced on the route in January 2014. Since then, more than 345,000 passengers have chosen to fly Emirates flagship aircraft to and from Zurich.

We anticipate that adding a second daily A380 to Zurich will not only enhance the travel experience of our passengers, but also stimulate trade and tourism between Switzerland, the Middle East, Africa and the Far East, said Hubert Frach, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations West. The additional A380 service from Zurich makes it even easier for travellers to enjoy a seamless Emirates A380 experience to key destinations like Mauritius, Bangkok, Shanghai, Sydney or Hong Kong, with just one stop at our hub in Dubai.

Emirates flight EK85 departs Dubai International Airport at 15:45 and arrives in Zurich at 20:20. The outbound flight EK86 departs from Zurich at 22:15 and arrives in Dubai at 06:25 the following day.

The upgraded service will feature 14 Private Suites in First Class, 76 flat-bed seats in Business Class, and 399 seats in Economy Class.
