Emirates Airlines will introduce the first scheduled commercial Airbus A380 service to Hamburg.
The A380 will be deployed on the morning service (EK059/EK060) from 29 October and it will be regularly deployed on the afternoon service (EK061/EK062) from 30 October.
Hamburg becomes the 49th destination on Emirates’ global network to be served by A380 aircraft. Passengers travelling from Hamburg can reach via Dubai to Auckland, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Mauritius, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney, Taipei, Tokyo and many more.
Emirates Vice President, Volker Greiner said, “We are excited to bring our Airbus flagship home and see Hamburg join the other 48 destinations. We currently serve with the A380. The Emirates A380 is an iconic aircraft that continues to excite our customers and set the benchmark for travel comfort in commercial flying. We look forward to offering the award winning Emirates A380 experience to our customers flying from Hamburg,”
He also said, “The A380 offers a total of 1,120 additional seats per week in each direction, meeting a growing demand from travelers on the route and demonstrating our commitment to Hamburg. Enabling an increase in passenger numbers will also result in additional tourism revenues for Hamburg and its wider region. Which in turn will mean boosting the local economy and job creation.”
