Emirates increases UK services and A380 deployment

Posted 18 November 2020 · Add Comment

Emirates has today announced plans to operate its A380 aircraft four times a day to Heathrow from 27th November and six times a week to Manchester from 2nd December, whilst increasing flights to Birmingham and Glasgow from the current four-a-week to daily services at both cities, from 27th November and 1st December respectively.

Emirates’ services to Manchester will increase from the current eight-a-week to 10 flights per week from 1 December, of which six will be served by an Emirates A380 and four with a Boeing 777-300ER. At London Heathrow, Emirates’ current twice daily A380 and once daily Boeing 777 flights will become four daily A380 services from 27 November.

The announcement represents a significant expansion of Emirates services to the UK, following the recent establishment of the UK-UAE air travel corridor which has led to increased demand. Under the air travel corridor, travellers entering the UK from the UAE will no longer be required to quarantine, which is a boon for travellers, and speaks to the UAE’s rigorous and effective pandemic response. In the other direction, UK travellers heading to Dubai can opt to do their COVID-19 PCR tests 96 hours in advance of their flight, or to do the test on arrival in Dubai, adding to the ease of travel.

The airline has also announced it will deploy additional A380 services to Moscow from the current two-a-week, to a daily service from 25 November. Emirates’ enhanced services to Moscow will also meet increased demand from travellers seeking to holiday in Dubai, or at popular island destinations within easy reach through Dubai, such as the Maldives.

Emirates was recently recognised as the Best Airline for 2020 at The Sun Travel Awards, and the Best Long-Haul Airline at The Times and The Sunday Times Travel Awards. The wins underscore Emirates’ commitment to offer a better and safer customer experience in the air and on the ground across every class of travel.
