Emirates Increases Perth Capacity with Launch of Second Daily A380 Service

Perth Airport welcomed its second daily Airbus A380 service this morning with the arrival of Emirates flight EK424 from Dubai at 12.50am.

Emirates second A380 Perth service will operate daily on the EK425 morning Perth to Dubai service and the return EK424 flight, replacing the current morning B777-300ER service.

The introduction of a second daily A380 service on the Perth-Dubai route has reaffirmed Emirates commitment to Western Australia as a destination, and means that more than 14,000 passengers can now fly between Perth and Dubai each week, said Kevin Brown, Chief Executive Officer, Perth Airport. The Emirates network includes over 150 destinations across six continents, opening up more opportunities for Western Australians to enjoy some fantastic global holiday destinations.

Emirates is continuing to grow its fleet of the hugely popular Airbus A380 aircraft. Passengers can now fly to over 40 global destinations from Perth in their flagship aircraft.

To improve the customer experience for Emirates passengers, the expanded International Departures lounge includes the newly opened Hudson Coffee and JR Duty Free store, and allows direct access to the Business and First Class Lounge which is situated next to the A380 gate, Mr Brown added. Our new International Departures lounge has the capacity to accommodate passengers departing on two A380 aircraft at the same time, so we look forward to working with airlines to deliver more services to Perth Airport in the coming years.

EK424 departs Dubai at 10:10, arriving in Perth at 00:50 the next day. EK425 departs Perth at 06:00, arriving in Dubai at 13:00 on the same day.
