Golf Asia - - LUXE SCENE -

In re­sponse to pop­u­lar cus­tomer de­mand, Emi­rates will pro­vide an all-a380 ser­vice on its Bei­jing (PEK) and Shang­hai (PVG) ser­vices when it up­grades the sec­ond daily flights, EK308/ EK309 on its PEK route and EK304/305 on its PVG route, re­plac­ing the cur­rent Boe­ing 777-300ER oper­a­tions. The move, ef­fec­tive from July 1 2017, will in­crease ca­pac­ity to both Bei­jing and Shang­hai, of­fer­ing Emi­rates pas­sen­gers even more seam­less A380-to-a380 con­nec­tions be­tween the two Chi­nese cities and over 30 in­ter­na­tional points, in­clud­ing 18 points in the UK and Europe, via its hub in Dubai. This up­grade strength­ens Emi­rates’ over­all main­land China of­fer­ing, which also in­cludes ser­vices to Guangzhou, Yinchuan and Zhengzhou.

On Emi­rates flights to and from China, pas­sen­gers in all classes can en­joy lo­cal Chi­nese cui­sine, and in­dus­try-lead­ing ser­vice from Chi­nese-speak­ing cabin crew. Pas­sen­gers can also en­joy over 2,500 chan­nels of the lat­est films and TV shows, in­clud­ing Chi­nese con­tent, as well as mu­sic and games on Emi­rates’ ice Dig­i­tal Widescreen, which has been named World’s Best In-flight En­ter­tain­ment at the pres­ti­gious Sky­trax World Air­line Awards for a record 12 years run­ning. Emi­rates was also named Best Air­line in the World in Tripad­vi­sor Trav­ellers’ Choice Awards for Air­lines 2017.

First and Busi­ness Class pas­sen­gers on the Emi­rates A380 can spend time dur­ing their flight so­cial­is­ing in the pop­u­lar On­board Lounge on the up­per deck of the air­craft, and First Class pas­sen­gers can en­joy exclusive use of the on-board shower spas to re­fresh dur­ing flights. Pre­mium cus­tomers are also of­fered com­pli­men­tary chauf­feur drive ser­vices to and from Bei­jing and Shang­hai air­ports, lounge ac­cess and pri­or­ity check-in.
