Emirates restarts its A380 aircraft to Perth in early December

 Emirates Airlines has announced that it will resume operating its A380 aircraft to Perth from December 1, as part of its plans to return its services to Australia to pre-pandemic levels. The use of the giant aircraft, instead of the Boeing 777 currently operating between Dubai and Perth, will increase the seat capacity provided by Emirates Airlines on this route to 500 seats per flight. The announcement coincides with Emirates' celebration of the 20th anniversary of the launch of its service to Perth, Western Australia.

Flight EK420 will leave Dubai International Airport at 2:45 am, arriving in Perth at 5:20 pm on the same day, while the return flight EK421 will leave Perth at 10:20 pm, arriving in Dubai at At 5:25 am the next day.


Since its inaugural flight to Perth in August 2002, Emirates Airlines has transported about 6 million passengers, and the number of flights between Dubai and Perth has increased to 24,000 flights, during which aircraft have traveled more than 220 million kilometers.


Emirates Airlines started its Perth service with four flights a week, but has continued to expand its operations to meet the strong demand for travel, the seamless connectivity it provides to its customers, in addition to its innovative products and award-winning services. The service became daily in May 2003, and in February 2006 the airline opened a private passenger terminal at Perth Airport. It also introduced first class suites in March 2008. Demonstrating its continued commitment to the Australian market, Emirates launched its flagship A380 aircraft for the first time on the Perth route in May 2015, offering customers in all classes an excellent service and travel experience.


Over the past years, Emirates Airlines has been supporting the arts, cultural and sports institutions in Western Australia, and has invested in many initiatives. Emirates SkyCargo, the airline's cargo arm, has also played an important role in supporting the local economy, transporting exports of meat, fruits, vegetables and mining equipment to various Emirates global destinations, including the Middle East and Europe.


Emirates Airlines is witnessing strong growth in passenger bookings to and from Australia, with great demand in all classes, especially after the launch of the premium economy class, which the airline introduced for the first time, starting from 1 August, on one of its daily flights to Sydney.


The European summer was the biggest driver of demand for Emirates Airlines, with European cities accounting for eight of the top ten destinations that Australians currently travel to. The United Kingdom tops the list of these destinations, followed by Italy, France, Greece and Ireland, then Spain, Lebanon, Germany, the Netherlands and Turkey.


Emirates customers benefit from stopover flights, as the number of passengers enjoying a short layover in Dubai is increasing significantly. The Dubai Experience platform, which was launched last April in 20 markets, including Australia, helps passengers discover all about Dubai and the United Arab Emirates.


Emirates and Qantas customers can access a wide network of destinations thanks to the codeshare partnership between the two airlines, which provides their customers with access to more than 100 destinations, including 55 points across Australia and New Zealand. Qantas customers can also fly with Emirates Airlines to Dubai, and continue their flights to more than 50 cities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.


Emirates remains focused on eliminating the stress of travel, and has led the industry in protecting the health of its customers. Emirates customers travel with confidence that the latest health and safety measures are implemented at every step of the journey. The carrier directs its customers to review the latest government travel guidelines and ensure that the requirements of their final destinations are met. Click here for entry requirements to Dubai.
