Emirates Airlines is the first airline to operate a daily "giant" flight to this city
Emirates Airlines announced today, Tuesday, its intention to operate its giant A380 aircraft for the first time to the Indian city of Bengaluru, starting from October 30.
Thus, Emirates will become the first airline to operate a scheduled service with the largest passenger aircraft in the world to Kempegowda International Airport in Bengaluru.
The carrier said in a statement that the use of the giant Emirates aircraft will meet the strong demand for travel to and from the city of Bengaluru, located in southern India, and will also allow customers to enjoy its distinguished services through a wider global network.
Bengaluru will become the second city in India to be served by the Emirates A380, as passengers have been enjoying the premium experience on the Dubai-Mumbai route since 2014.
The three-class A380 is expected to serve the daily EK568/569 flight between Dubai and Bengaluru, which will add necessary capacity to meet the huge demand for flights to and from India after travel restrictions are eased.
It will also enhance the carrier's two daily services to Bengaluru, "EK564/565" and "EK566/567", which are currently operating with "Boeing 777-200LR" and "Boeing 777-300ER" aircraft in the three-class division.
Emirates continues to deploy its giant aircraft to serve more destinations to meet the growing demand on various routes, increasing the capacity on a single flight by up to 45% more than the Boeing 777 aircraft.
The Emirates network with A380 aircraft currently covers more than 30 destinations, while the airline currently serves more than 130 destinations across six continents.
