As of December 1, Emirates Airlines will be servicing Bangkok daily with a fourth A380 service from Dubai.
The new Dubai-to-Bangkok two-class A380 service will run daily as flight EK376 and as EK377 from Bangkok to Dubai.
The new addition comes as an upgrade to its current Boeing 777-300ER carrier and allows an increase in seating capacity reaching 3,570 seats weekly to and from the Thai capital.
“Thailand is an important market for Emirates, and the A380 has been extremely popular with travelers since we first started the double-decker aircraft service to Thailand in 2009. The addition of this two-class A380 passenger service will give even more travellers the chance to experience this revolutionary aircraft first hand,” said Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations East, Barry Brown.
The Dubai-based carrier’s two-class A380 can handle 615 passengers in its business and economy cabins.
The EK376 will depart from Dubai at 03.30 and arrive at Suvarnabhumi International Airport at 12:35 on the same day with connections to European and African destinations.
It is expected to be a prime choice among Northern European travelers from the UK and Scandinavia heading to Thailand’s capital.
Departing from Bangkok at 16:00, Emirates’ return flight – EK377 – is conveniently timed to coincide with hotel check-out times, arriving in Dubai on the same day at 19:55, with a total flying time of six hours and 55 minutes.
Emirates is the Middle East’s largest carrier, operating over 3,300 flights weekly from its hub at Dubai International Airport, to more than 144 cities in 78 countries. Its A380 aircraft serve 34 global destinations.
