Emirates gets second A380

23 Oct 2008 by Mark Caswell

Emirates has
taken delivery of its second A380 superjumbo, which will enter service on the
Dubai-JFK route from October 27.

The new aircraft
will join Emirates’ first A380 on the Dubai-New York route, meaning the carrier
will serve JFK daily with the superjumbo (its second daily flight will continue
to be served by a Boeing 777-300ER).

From December 1
Emirates will ply the London Heathrow-Dubai route with the A380, followed by Australian
destinations starting next year. For the lowdown on the Emirates A380 aircraft,

available on the superjumbo, click here.
