3-Aug-2012 1:08 PM

Emirates confirmed (01-Aug-2012) it has become the first carrier to offer a scheduled A380 service to the Netherlands, after just two years since its first service to Amsterdam. The carrier is deploying A380 equipment daily on the Dubai-Amsterdam service, with Amsterdam becoming the 19th A380 destination around the world. The A380 deployed on the Amsterdam route is configured in a three-class configuration with 427 economy, 76 business and 14 first class seats. Deploying A380 equipment instead of Boeing 777 equipment will add more than 2000 weekly seats on the route. The carrier also noted over 10 million passengers have now travelled on the Emirates A380. The carrier’s 22 A380s now serve Amsterdam, Auckland, Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Jeddah, Johannesburg, Kuala Lumpur, London Heathrow, Manchester, Munich, New York JFK, Paris, Rome, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney, Toronto, Tokyo, with Melbourne set to launch on 01-Oct-2012 and Moscow on 01-Dec-2012.  [more - original PR]
