Emirates is continuing to bring its A380 aircraft back into service as market demand increases, with Toronto the next in line to see the superjumbo.

From August 16 the carrier’s A380 will be rostered onto flight EK241, departing Dubai at 0910 (arriving into Toronto at 1505), and EK242 departing the Canadian city at 2145 (arriving back into Dubai at 1830 the following day).

Emirates has gradually been adding A380 services over the last few weeks – the airline’s fleet of 115 superjumbos had been grounded for several months following the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, with B777s being used to operate flights as the carrier resumed services.

London Heathrow and Paris were the first destinations to see the resumption of A380 service, followed by Amsterdam and Cairo. Guangzhou will join the list today (August 8).

The airline says it will fly to 70 cities in August, representing over half of its pre-pandemic network.

This week Emirates announced route resumptions to Kuwait City (restarted on August 5) and Lisbon (August 16). Both destinations will be served with Emirates’ B777-300ER aircraft.
