Emirates boosts Airbus A380 flights to Manchester

Emirates is upsizing its flights from Dubai to Manchester next month with the second of three daily services taking on the Airbus A380 aircraft.

The superjumbo will offers 14 first class suites, two ‘shower spas’ and 76 business class beds on the upper deck, plus 399 economy seats on the main deck.

Emirates’ other Manchester flights remain unchanged, served by an A380 and the smaller Boeing 777.

“Manchester is the third busiest airport in the UK and demand for flights to Dubai, and beyond, has increased significantly during our 25 years of operating out of the airport,” said Hubert Frach, Emirates’ Divisional SVP, Commercial Operations – West.

Emirates’ upgraded Manchester flights follow the airline’s launch of the first-ever scheduled A380 services to Milan and come as the airline unleashes free wireless Internet across its entire superjumbo fleet.
