UGANDA (eTN) - A source at the Kampala office of Emirates has confirmed to this correspondent that the airline will effective October 1 of this year begin to use the giant A380 aircraft on their route between Dubai and Hong Kong via Bangkok, offering even greater inflight comfort and service than has been the case until now.

The giant airline, Emirates, recently took delivery of their 12th A380, and is progressively introduced on high density/high-demand routes to permit travelers flying via Dubai to reach their final destination in style, while the existing fleet of A330 and B777 aircraft is subsequently being deployed for an increase in frequencies to other destinations, where either the airports are not yet ready to received the A380 until modifications to air bridges and other facilities have been carried out or where traffic at this moment in time does not make the use of an A380 viable.

The same source also reiterated that flights between Dubai and Manchester will be upgraded to the A380 as of September 1, making it the second such UK destination after London Heathrow.

Emirates is the largest customer for the A380 and has another 78 aircraft on order, due for deliveries over the coming years, all aimed to cement the airline’s ambition to become the world’s biggest airline connecting the entire globe via Dubai.
