Emirates Key Developments

Emirates to Introduce First Class Cabin

EMIRATES announced that it will introduce a first class cabin that allows more privacy at commercially viable rates, following the success of premium suites on its super jumbos. The product will initially be rolled out on the airline's Airbus 380 planes followed by the Boeing 777s, Sheikh Majid Al Mualla, Emirates' divisional senior vice-president of commercial operations for the region.

Emirates to Launch of Railway Cabin Style A380 First Class Product

Emirates is preparing to launch a new luxury bedroom product on its Airbus A380 and Boeing 777s. The new premium product would be more like a private railway cabin and will cater for one passenger. The new product, which will be rolled out amongst its existing fleet, would be more commercially viable for passengers, when asked about a pricing. London, the most popular for Emirates first class passengers, is likely to be among the first route for the new luxury bedroom product.

Emirates Launches Second Daily Airbus A380 Service to Gatwick Airport

Emirates has launched a second daily A380 service to London Gatwick Airport. Due to passenger demand, Emirates has taken the decision to immediately upgrade its EK15/16 route that was previously operated by a Boeing 777. The A380 will add a total of 318 seats per day increasing capacity in all three classes by 11.5 percent. Over 330,000 customers have already flown with the A380 to and from London Gatwick since the aircraft was first deployed in March 2014. The introduction of a second daily Emirates A380 to London Gatwick is expected to help facilitate increased trade from key destinations in West Asia, Australia, Africa, the Middle East and Far East. Leisure travellers will also benefit from the additional capacity which has been introduced well in time for the UK summer. The Emirates A380 offers spacious seating in Economy Class, access to the world's only onboard Shower Spas for First Class passengers and the Onboard Lounge where First Class and Business Class passengers can socialise at 40,000 feet. Passengers throughout all classes can also enjoy access to over 2,000 channels of films, TV shows, music and games through ice, the airline's award-winning inflight entertainment system as well as free wifi connectivity and gourmet cuisine. As with all Emirates flights, passengers will benefit from a generous baggage allowance of 30kg in Economy Class, 40kg in Business Class and 50kg in First Class. Emirates flight EK15 will depart Dubai International Airport at 08:00hrs and arrive in London Gatwick at 12:30hrs. The outbound flight, EK16, will depart London Gatwick Airport at 14:25hrs and arrive in Dubai at 00:25hrs.
