Emirates launches A380 operations to two new cities in East and West
01 May, 2016
Emirates has expanded the network of destinations served by its flagship A380 aircraft with the launch of new scheduled A380 services to Taipei and Prague, becoming the first and only airline to operate an A380 into these two cities. Emirates has grown demand for its services on both routes, and together with the increasing popularity of the Emirates A380 experience among customers, the airline made the decision to deploy one of its fleet of 77 A380 aircraft on each route. Taipei was introduced as a daily Boeing 777 service on 10 February 2014 and Emirates has since transported nearly 450,000 passengers between Taipei and Emirates’ Dubai home. The Prague-Dubai route was launched on 1 July 2010 with a daily A330 service and Emirates has since carried over 1.1 million passengers between the two cities.
