The largest commercial plane in the world will make a route of only 400 kilometers between Dubai and Muscat.
Emirates announced the incorporation of the huge Airbus A380 in one of the frequencies operating between the Dubai International Airport (DXB), in the United Arab Emirates and the Muscat International Airport (MCT), in neighboring Oman.
The aircraft will replace the Boeing 777-300ER that currently operates that frequency from next July 1. The new aircraft is configured with 429 Economy Class seats on the lower deck, 76 Executive Class flat bed seats and 14 First Class Private Suites located on the upper deck.
The route operated by the giant will be almost 400 kilometers long and will only take an hour.
“We are proud to fly the first scheduled service of the A380 to Muscat, as Emirates marks a significant milestone of 25 years of service in the capital of Oman. It is a very important destination for us in the region and we maintain our firm commitment to the country. We look forward to showcasing our innovative products and elegant services aboard this iconic aircraft, “said Khalid Bel Jaflah, Commercial Vice President, Commercial Operations, Emirates.
