Emirates, a global connector of people, places and economies, has announced its sixth daily A380 service to Australia and second daily service to Singapore with the up-gauge of its current service between Dubai and Melbourne via Singapore.
From the 1st of March 2016, EK404 and EK405 will be operated by Emirates flagship A380 aircraft, replacing the existing Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, providing more customer options as well as additional seat capacity on the route. With this up-gauge, Melbourne will be served twice daily with an Emirates A380. Watch the video of an Emirates A380 landing in Melbourne here.
In addition to the increased capacity, the aircraft up-gauge on this route will provide travellers with another seamless A380 connection option when travelling to Melbourne or Singapore from a number of US, Europe and Middle East destinations globally through its hub in Dubai.
