Emirates to fly second A380 to Manchester

6 Jan 2015 by GrahamSmith

Emirates will add a second daily A380 onto its Manchester route next month.

From February 1, the Gulf carrier will operate a superjumbo on flights EK019/EK020 between Dubai and Manchester.

Outbound service EK019 departs Dubai at 1435 and arrives in Manchester at 1835, with return service EK020 taking-off from Manchester at 2025 and landing in Dubai at 0740 the following day, reports

Emirates currently flies between the two cities three-times daily, with the A380 rostered onto flights EK017/EK018.

The introduction of the second daily A380 means that half of the airline's 16 daily flights to the UK will be operated by an A380 from next month.

The airline will launch a third daily flight to Birmingham next year (see news, December 23).
