From February next year, Emirates will exclusively operate Airbus A380s on its five daily services to London-Heathrow.

“Due to high customer demand for the A380 product, soon, travellers to and from London Heathrow will be able to enjoy our flagship aircraft on every flight,” said Salem Obaidalla, Emirates’ senior vice president commercial operations, Europe & Russian Federation. “Our customers will also have a greater chance of an all-A380 experience when travelling across our network between London, Dubai and places such as Bangkok, Beijing, Tokyo, Sydney, and from 1st October, Melbourne.”

As of the end of May, Emirates had 21 A380s in operation, with a further 90 on order.
