Emirates to operate A380 "one-off" to Doha

14 Jul 2015 by GrahamSmith

Emirates will fly a one-off A380 service to Doha this week.

The Gulf airline will roster the superjumbo on to its EK841/842 morning flight on July 16.

It is Emirates policy to run proving flights, to see if ground handling at the destination airport can cope, and then to follow-up with a regular scheduled service at some future stage.

Outbound service EK841 departs Dubai at 0735 and lands in Doha at 0815, with return service EK842 leaving Doha at 0945 and arriving in Dubai at 1145, reports

Emirates operated "one-off" A380 proving flights to Glasgow and Tehran last year (see news, February and September 2014).
