Emirates has deployed its latest flagship A380 aircraft featuring new premium economy seats and enhancements across all cabins to London Heathrow.

Starting from today (January 4), flight EK003/004 will depart Dubai daily at 1430, arriving at London Heathrow at 1820. The return flight departs London at 2020 and arrives in Dubai the next day at 0720.

Emirates unveiled its latest A380 with its new premium economy product last week, featuring seats which have a generous pitch of up to 40 inches.

The aircraft also features the airline’s new economy class seats, similar to those installed on its latest Boeing 777-300ER, enhancements to its popular A380 first and business class including its signature Shower Spa and Onboard Lounge, and refreshed colours and fittings across all cabins.

Until more premium economy seats enter its inventory, the airline intends to offer these as spot upgrades for its valued customers on a discretionary basis. All other signature Emirates A380 first, business and economy cabins are available for reservation on or via travel agents.

Emirates currently serves London Heathrow with five daily flights of which four are operated by an A380. The airline also operates ten flights a week to Manchester and daily flights to both Birmingham and Glasgow.
