Emirates A380 soars back to Perth

Australian first class flyers rejoice. Emirates has announced it will resume flying its Airbus A380 to Perth from 1 December. The daily service is set to replace the existing daily Boeing 777 flight between Dubai and Perth.

An increased seating capacity of close to 500 seats available on each flight will make it easier for more travellers to enjoy a quintessential Emirates experience aboard its flagship aircraft.

Emirates has reported European cities now make up 8 of its top 10 destinations for Australian flyers, with Italy, France, Greece, and Ireland in the top five. The announcement of the return of the A380 to Perth comes at a time when many Australians are continuing to flock abroad for a European summer, creating a jumbo demand for travel.

Australians who choose to fly with Emirates can also enjoy exceptional service across all classes and an expansive network of destinations thanks to the airline’s codeshare partnership with Qantas. Together, the two carriers provide Australian flyers with more than 100 destinations worldwide, including 55 points across Australia and New Zealand.

Offering unparalleled service in the skies

Emirates’ superjumbo sets the gold standard for inflight experiences by offering unparalleled first and business-class experiences in the sky. While the A380 won’t offer premium economy seats, an increased seating capacity is among many other notable upgrades.

Kicking back in a private suite, freshening up with an in-flight shower, or indulging at the signature cocktail bar are some of the key selling points that make a business or first class redemption aboard the Emirates A380 so appealing. And Emirates Skywards members can also unlock miles earning on the ground.

Emirates’ decision to bring back its flagship aircraft comes at a time when the airline is celebrating 20 years of flying to Perth. Demand for the flight in 2002 increased operation from four times a week to daily within its first year. 

At the time of writing, we’ve not spotted any award seat availability via the Qantas website – but watch this space!
