Emirates will launch a daily A380 service between Dubai and Singapore’s Changi Airport.
The 517-seat A380 will replace a 354-seat Boeing 777-300ER and will complement three other daily 777 services, giving Emirates a total of 1659 seats per day between Dubai and Singapore. The dedicated A380 service is scheduled to launch in December.
Emirates said the decision follows a well-received two-week trial run of A380 flights between the two cities.
“Despite the current global economic uncertainty, we remain committed to the Singapore market,” Emirates Senior Vice President Salem Obaidalla said in a statement.
