Emirates announces new flights to Australia and Singapore
The flights will be available starting March 1, 2016, and EK405 will be operated in the Emirates flagship A380 that offers a larger seat capacity.
Customers will also have another seamless A380 connection option when travelling to Melbourne or Singapore from a number of U.S., Europe and Middle East destinations globally through its hub in Dubai. With the addition of this service, Australia will become the third-largest A380 destination for Emirates globally with a total of six daily flights.
Passengers in all three cabins can enjoy more than 2,000 channels of the latest movies, TV shows and music from around the world alongside a range of games on the award-winning in-flight entertainment system. The latest technology allows passengers to stay connected throughout the flight with high-speed Wi-Fi access and mobile phone and data services.
"Emirates’ daily service between Dubai and Melbourne through Singapore has proved a popular choice among travelers and we’re pleased to be able to provide additional capacity on this route by up-gauging the aircraft to our flagship A380,” Barry Brown, Emirates divisional senior vice president, said.
