Emirates adds fourth A380 to Bangkok

29 Jul 2015 by GrahamSmith

Emirates will add a fourth daily A380 service on to its Bangkok route later this year.

The Gulf airline will replace the B777-300ER that currently operates flights EK376/377 with the two-class superjumbo on December 1.

The A380 will have 615 seats with 58 in business class and 557 in economy. The move will see an increase in capacity of 255 seats per flight, or 3,570 seats per week.

Outbound service EK376 departs Dubai at 0330 and arrives at Suvarnabhumi International airport at 1235, with return leg EK377 leaving Bangkok at 1600 and landing in Dubai at 1955.

Emirates currently operates six daily services between Dubai and Bangkok, three with the A380 and three with B777-300ER aircraft.

Divisional senior vice president Barry Brown said: "Thailand is an important market for Emirates, and the A380 has been extremely popular with travellers since we first started the double-decker aircraft service to Thailand in 2009."

Earlier this week, it emerged that Emirates will launch a second daily service to Lisbon next year (see news, July 27).
