Emirates A380 heading to Kuala Lumpur

30 Jul 2015 by GrahamSmith

Emirates will add an A380 on to its Dubai-Kuala Lumpur route next year.

From January 1, the Gulf carrier will replace the B777-300ER that currently operates flights EK342/343 with a two-class superjumbo, reports

This A380 configuration carries a whopping 615 passengers, with 58 in business class and 557 in economy.

Flight EK342 will depart Dubai at 1015 and arrive in Kuala Lumpur at 2125, while return leg EK343 will leave Kuala Lumpur at 0110 and land in Dubai at 0430.

Emirates' three other Dubai-Kuala Lumpur services — EK344/345, EK346/347 and EK408/409 — will all continue to be operated by B777-300ER aircraft.

From December 1, Emirates will fly a fourth daily A380 service to Bangkok (see news, July 29).
